Now wrapping its third season, the popular web series “Queer Kid Stuff” breaks down LGBTQ themes, experiences and ideas in ways that are fun and easy for young viewers to comprehend.
“Queer folks ― including queer kids and young people ― face hardships and inequality every day,” Amer told HuffPost. “I am committed to spreading queer joy, but that joy stems from a whole lot of pain, and it is important to acknowledge those roots for young people.”
The second, more lighthearted episode takes a look the topic of chosen, or nontraditional, families. Likening a chosen family to a soccer team, Amer says, “You work together to score goals and try to win with teamwork.” (Catch that episode below.)
“It’s not about winning and losing,” she explains. “It’s about living life together.”
