In this online workshop, we will chat with Lindz, the Founder of Queer Kid Stuff, an LGBTQ+ and social justice webseries for kids. They explain queer topics through a vlog-style conversation with young viewers focused on love and family. They started Queer Kid Stuff because they wish they had something like it when they were a kid. We will chat with Lindz about Queer Kid Stuff, about LGBTQ+ issues, and about their social activism work. The kids will be able to ask questions – either on the video call or through the chat (whichever makes them feel more comfortable) – in a safe, supportive environment. I am so excited for this amazing opportunity to learn more so that we can do better.

We have listed the age range of 8 – 12 as a guide. We are happy to have younger children join … especially with parental involvement. You know your child best – if you think you have a 7 or even 6 year old who could handle attending this on their own, feel free to sign them up. If you have even younger children, but want to attend with them, sign up as a family. We do love when we have parents joining us for the workshop! You are always able to mute yourself, you can even have your video off – and the kids are not expected to sit still and listen perfectly – we have had kids participate before while jumping on a trampoline! We want everyone to participate in whatever way they feel comfortable and learn best! And we don’t believe that kids are ever too young to discuss a topic – especially with their parents there to help field additional questions.
The workshop will take place through Zoom. The meeting link will be emailed to participants the day of the workshop.
You will notice that we have listed two ticket prices for workshop – $15 or $25 per family. I use this two ticket format when I am running a workshop with a guest. When I invite a guest to a workshop, I want to make sure that they are fairly compensated, so I split the revenue from a shared workshop 50/50. But I also want to be sensitive to our participants’ needs right now.
With this two ticket format, families can self-select the ticket price that works best for them in this current time. We know that a lot of people are experiencing financial hardship right now, and we want to be empathetic, compassionate and accommodating to that. But we also know that there are others who are less affected financially right now and are looking for ways to help our local artists, organizations, community builders and businesses. We thought that this two ticket price system was a fair way to balance all this. Please select either price, without any guilt or fear of judgement. And, if $15 is not possible at this time, but you really want to attend, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out!
