TikTok ‘can’t quit watching’ Pride month sing-along from a kid’s show: ‘I’m crying happy tears’

Nickelodeon celebrated Pride month with a Blue’s Clues & You sing-along about LGBTQIA+ families. And now TikTok is obsessed. 

The children’s show debuted the “The Blue’s Clues Pride Parade Sing-Along” featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Nina West in late May.

In the uplifting tune, West and Blue sing about a rally full of all different kinds of animal families on floats featuring LGBTQIA+ parents and children.

“This family has two daddies / They love each other so proudly / And they all go marching in the big parade,” West sang. “Love is love is love, you see / And everyone should love proudly.”

TikTok user Ariella M. Elm shared the musical number and quickly went viral

“If you really wanted to, you could have thought the Blue’s Clues’ ‘ABC’ song was being subtle. Yeah, this is not so subtle,” Elm joked in the clip. “Happy Pride, everyone.”

‘I’m crying happy tears…’

The TikTok received over 2.7 million views, with lots of people moved by all of the positive representation young children are receiving. 

“I can’t quit watching or crying. Help!” a person commented

“This is a kid’s program that the new generation will grow up on. I’m crying happy tears,” someone said.

“Not me crying when I saw the disabled dolphin. I’ve never been included in stuff like this,” another wrote

Drag queen Nina West was proud to be a part of the collaboration. 

“What I love about my collaboration with Nickelodeon and Blue’s Clues & You! is that we celebrate everyone that makes up our LGBTQIA+ community. It reminds us all that we are integral for the fight for equality,” West told Entertainment Weekly.

“My job is to not only provide a space for celebration and fun but to reiterate, specifically to my community, that LGBTQIA+ are valid, worthy, and perfect the way they are.”
