Many adults don’t even understand the lyrics in the singalong!
“The Blue’s Clues Pride Parade Sing-Along,” was published on the show’s YouTube channel and features a cartoon version of Nina West, an American drag queen, who leads the children in a song set to the tune of ‘The Ants Go Marching’.
RT reports: The song features words such as “queer,” “trans,” “bi,” as well as “pan” and “non-binary,” with the lyrics displayed at the bottom of the screen so that children can sing along.
For example, as a group of beavers decked out in LGBTQ and trans regalia ride by, the drag queen sings:
“Families marching four by four hurrah! Hurrah! Families marching four by four hurrah! Hurrah! / Trans members of this family / they love each other so proudly / and they all go marching in the big parade.”
One of the cartoon beavers is shown with visible “top scars” – scars from surgery that transgender men undergo to remove breast tissue. The detail was confirmed by Snopes, which “fact-checked” whether Nickelodeon intended for the pixelated lines on the beaver’s chest to represent such scars.
The video ends with West wishing everyone a “happy Pride Month.”
