Queer Kid Stuff - educating kids on LGBTQ+ topics

I stumbled across this today and can't stop watching. Very well done explanations aimed at kids, but definitely suitable for allies who have a hard time wrapping their mind around it all.

From the website -
"The pilot episode, which launched April 20th, 2016, tackles the subject; What Does Gay Mean? A simple enough subject, but you would be surprised the amount of young children who might not know the answer to that question. Queer Kid Stuff was awarded a grant from the Awesome Foundation to fund production for a full season of 10 brand new episodes which debuted in Fall 2016 covering topics including non-binary genders and trans* identities, marriage equality, feminism, and queer themes in children's pop culture."

I was gonna make a comment about, but why not just show them Steven Universe, and then they already had Steven Universe popsicle puppets, so yeah, I'm good.

Steven Universe is really great, but it's still sad that we still have to hide the Queerness in a "They're genderless aliens" sandwich to get the network to eat it. We should be past that by now, but honestly I don't think we're even past "Exposing children to LGBTQ+ topics turns them gay."
