Lindsay ‘Lindz’ Amer creates LGBTQ+ and social justice media for kids and families.
They write, produce, and co-host Queer Kid Stuff, an original LGBTQ+ educational webseries for ages 3 and up. They also perform QKS music and stories at schools, museums, libraries, and local LGBTQ+ community centers and are embarking on a six-city tour for the 2019-2020 school year. They recently executive produced a pride campaign to #SpreadQueerJoy in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which culminated in a celebratory music video.
They are the founder and CEO of Queer Kid Studios, a multi-media production company based in Portland, Maine making queer-focused intersectional all-ages media. They are a Creative Resident at SPACE on Ryder Farm, and a TED Resident, were named a Rising Star by GLAAD, a Queero by them.us, were a Webby Honoree, and have received grants from the Made in NYC Women’s Media Fund, the Awesome Project, and VidCon’s Emerging Creator program.
The Huffington Post calls Queer Kid Stuff a “groundbreaking YouTube educational resource.” Teen Vogue praised their episode on consent during the height of #MeToo that “shows exactly why there’s no excuse not to grasp consent. Even toddlers can understand it.” And @shondarhimes tweeted she’s “so here for this!”
Lindz is currently developing a children’s podcast focusing on social justice, and a narrative web series spin-off of QKS. They are also writing a picture book, and a full-length screenplay about a non-binary kid!
