Spring is in full bloom and Out On Screen is planting the seeds for our 2017/18 programming. The Out in Schools program saw unprecedented growth last year, reaching more than 12,000 youth across BC. Every time we visit a school, your gift is fostering inclusion, building empathy, and growing allyship. Our 2017/18 requests are already higher than last year. We cannot meet this increased demand for our presentations, especially in rural communities, without your support. The 2016 Festival was one of our most successful. Over the years, you’ve nurtured the Festival into the largest queer arts event in Western Canada and Vancouver’s second largest film festival. Your support highlights the tremendous diversity of queer, trans, and two-spirit stories from our communities and around the globe. This year, we need your help to continue to grow this world-class festival and to deepen our roots in our local LGBT2Q+ and allied community. Now is the time to renew your support for the Festival and Out in Schools and to double your impact through our partnership with Scotiabank. All donations made before June 9th will be matched by Scotiabank, up to $5,000, providing fertile soil upon which our programs can grow. Please donate today by using the widget on the righthand side of this page or by going to our main donation page. Our Bloom into Spring Campaign needs to raise $10,000 to maintain our programs. We’re so grateful for your support!
