My wife, Susan, and I have a plan to vlog on The Next Family Youtube channel for 30 days. We just hit 13 days, so we thought we’d switch things up and have a two-mom video where we talked about some current news and awesome viral videos.
As you watch our video, you’ll see just how excited we are for Pride this year! We discuss how we actually haven’t been to Pride in a few years, as it’s a little more difficult to maneuver Pride events with kids. But we are considering attending this year as Pride is going to be less of a parade and party, and more of a political march, which might be a bit easier and more kid-friendly.
With the Pride conversation came a discussion about what we call ourselves and the titles we give ourselves in and out of the LGBT community. For instance, we watched two viral videos — one with a young boy doing a makeup tutorial, and another with a young girl doing an oil-change tutorial. Both kids are very impressive in their skill sets and it was really amazing for us to watch how kids are breaking out of gender roles and the types of interests associated with those roles.
Check out our video below and be sure to subscribe and comment — we want to know what you and your family are doing for Pride!
