Using supplies from where you are, or your Out In Schools care package, make your own pride symbol, whether recreating a classic option or imagining a new one! We will talk about pride symbols past and present, and share some examples.
6PM: (Short) Film Screening & Discussion, Ur Aska
We’ll be screening the Danish animated short film Ur Aska that’s been such a joy for our team to share as part of our presentations. We’ll chat about what makes transness a gift, and recommendations for other trans shorts, films, and more.
