Event has passed

ROCKLAND — Lindsay “Lindz” Amer, the creator of Queer Kid Stuff, the edutainment company that brings LGBTQ+ and social justice media to kids and families, will present the live show “It’s Pride” on Sunday, June 5, at 3 p.m., at the Strand Theatre.

As a Strand Family Series special event, tickets for the show are on a Pay-What-You-Can sliding scale of $0-20, and the concert is available to livestream. The hour-long performance is appropriate for all ages.

In this celebration of PRIDE, Lindz will tell about PRIDE’S roots with a kid-friendly historical retelling of Stonewall and the creation of the beloved Rainbow Flag. Pride-themed original songs and covers will be performed as Lindz recounts LGBTQ+ history. 

About the artist: In 2015, Founder Lindsay “Lindz” Amer and their best stuffed friend, Teddy, created Queer Kid Stuff, an LGBTQ+ and social justice webseries for kids. On a YouTube channel with over 25,000 subscribers, they explain queer topics through a vlog-style conversation with young viewers focused on love and family. The short videos are a tool for parents, teachers, and LGBTQ+ adults to help them explain these words and ideas to young children in their lives, recommended for all ages. Since then, Queer Kid Stuff has become much more than a webseries – growing into an edutainment staple for schools, libraries, childcare centers, and events aiming to provide energetic and informative performances about all things LGBTQ+.

The video of this performance will also be available to stream after the event throughout the month of June.
