'Blue's Clues' Just Included These 9 LGBTQ+ Pride Flags In New Video
The current iteration of the classic children's show Blues Clues, called Blues Clues & You, showed how much pride they have in a new Alphabet Song video released on the Neckelodeon show's official YouTube channel. In the video, when they get to the letter "P," Traci Paige Johnson, who voices the dog Blue, sings, "P is full of Pride!" while a series of LGBTQ+ pride flags appear all around the letters. Here are the flags included and what they mean.
