Rebecca Sugar on gender & sexual diversity in “Steven Universe”

On April 3, 2016, Rebecca Sugar held a panel during the MoCCa Arts Festival in Manhattan, NY for a lucky group of 85 fans.

In part four of eight videos, Rebecca discusses gender diversity in “Steven Universe” and why it is important for young kids to understand why it is okay to feel the way they do.

“If you wait to tell kids, to tell queer youth that it matters how they feel or that they are even a person, then it is going to be too late. You have to let it be what it gets to be for everyone… You are told that you should dream about love, this fulfilling love that you are going to have… like the Prince and Snow White are not someones parents. They are something you want to be and are dreaming of a future where you will find happiness Why shouldn’t everyone have that? It’s really absurd to think that everyone shouldn’t get to have that.”

Sugar also whipped out the ukulele to play a song for us related to her thoughts on this topic, “So this is love” from Cinderella. And the fans go crazy!
