New Web Series 'Sez Me' Gets Kids Talking About Gender Expression
A new family-friendly web series called Sez Me aims to explore gender identity and counter the myth that it's inappropriate for children to be exposed to LGBTQ lifestyles, according to creator Mor Erlich, a youth counselor at the Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBTQ youth. Hosted by drag queen Charmin Ultra, aka Jeff Marras, the series is now in its third episode. The Huffington Post recently interviewed Marras, Erlich, and Sez Me's writer and sound guy Lee Free.
In Sez Me, kids from "diverse family units (single parent, gay parent, lesbian parent, inter-racial, hetero-normative/non-normative, etc.)" both interview and get interviewed by members of the LGBTQ community, "with a focus on the involvement of adults who represent non-traditional gender expressions" such as self-identified drag queens, gender queers, and trans people, according to the show's website. Here's episode one, in which Marras transforms into Charmin Ultra. You can watch more episodes at www.sezme.me.
