“Blue’s Clues & You” is getting ready to celebrate Pride.
The animated kids’ show had enlisted the help of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” star Nina West.

In a video posted on Friday, a cartoon version of West leads a sing-a-long about LGBTQ+ families including non-binary children and households with two moms or two dads.
All the families in the video are made up of animals during a parade, waving rainbow flags. Words like “queer”, “trans” and “pan” are all used for the sing-a-long.
The reaction on social media has been overwhelming.
This children's cartoon segment has more queer representation than anything else out there and it is melting my cold gay heart 🥲🏳️🌈💜 pic.twitter.com/ppWns4UZEQ

Words cannot describe how happy this makes me. Blue’s Clues was my favorite as a kid, and I cannot believe that it would continue to be important to me as an adult.
“And P is full of Pride!”

Blue's Clues literally featured a queer nonbinary disabled dolphin, the rest of the media needs to buck up their ideas. pic.twitter.com/wjH0GgM28q
