WATCH: ‘Blue’s Clues,’ drag queen Nina West team up in Pride Month sing-along
Nickelodeon animated series “Blue’s Clues” has partnered with “RuPaul’s Drag Race” star Nina West for its LGBTQ-themed sing-along, in honor of Pride Month this June.
West sang to the tune of the nursery rhyme “The Ants Go Marching,” but with its lyrics changed to teach young children about the LGBTQ community, as seen on the series’s YouTube channel last Friday, May 28.
The sing-along features the titular cartoon dog with an animated version of West marching with various animals in a Pride Parade. It also discussed different kinds of families, including those with transgender, non-binary, lesbian and gay parents.
“This family has two mommies/ They love each other so proudly/ And they all go marching/ In the big parade,” West sings.
“Love is love is love you see/ And everyone should love proudly,” West added as the animated parade ends. He also greeted the show’s young audience a happy Pride Month.
“What a way to kick off Pride Month than with my pal, Blue! Singing and dancing in the streets celebrating Pride is so much fun, especially with all of our new friends!” West said as she showed a snippet of the sing-along on her Instagram page, also on Friday.
