QUEER VOICES

Here's An Amazing Resource For Helping Kids Understand Bisexuality

It also breaks down pansexuality

The latest episode of our favorite queer web series for kids, “Queer Kid Stuff,” is continuing to demystify the letters of the LGBTQ acronym, this time focusing on bisexuality.

Bisexuality is a complicated identity within the spectrum of LGBTQ identity, and it oftentimes means different things to different people. “Queer Kid Stuff” creator Lindsey Amer told The Huffington Post that she recognizes the definition presented in the video might be more binary than some people are comfortable with, but that she simplified the definition in order to prioritize the ability of children to understand. Amer also introduces the idea of pansexuality in order to not erase or exclude non-binary people.

“We’re continuing to break down the letters in LGBT and lay the foundational groundwork for the series,” Amer told The Huffington Post. “This episode focuses on making bisexuality visible and helping children understand that you can love people of different genders. I’m hoping to continue complicating the definition laid out here as we introduce even more ideas into the series and expand our understandings of both sexuality and gender identity.”

“Queer Kid Stuff” is a weekly web series that breaks down queer themes and experiences for children in a way that is accessible, educational and fun. Previous episodes in this web series have explored ideas such as gender and even the fundamental idea of queerness itself.
