Summer Qamp Fundraiser Screening

Apr 10, 2024

Cineplex Scotiabank, 900 Burrard St

Pack your sunscreen and pink hair dye, because we’re taking you to Summer Qamp for our spring fundraiser screening with drag performances by Toddy! This family-friendly documentary showcases the vibrancy and joy of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth connecting with one another and supportive mentors in a space just for them.

Set in rural Alberta, Summer Qamp reminds us who we’re fighting for.

Come dressed up in your summer camp finest–whatever that means to you!–and join us after the show for a runway hosted by Toddy. Drag and dressing up are encouraged but not required to participate. You are welcome just as you are!

All ticket proceeds and donations support the Out In Schools program.


Film synopsis

“Buried within the woods of Alberta, Canada sits camp fYrefly, a haven for LGBTQIA2S+ teens, far away from the fierce political battle currently being waged against queer expression and gender identity. Summer Qamp invites audiences into the innocence and joy of a summer away with friends, while never losing sight of the bravery of these young protagonists whose very existence is challenged in their normal lives.”

About Out In Schools

This event is a fundraiser for Out In Schools, an award-winning 2SLGBTQIA+ education program based in Vancouver, BC. We travel across the province to bring positive, age-appropriate film, education, and discussion about 2SLGBTQIA+ experiences into schools, workplaces and communities.

Out In Schools has been proven to build safer, more inclusive communities through the power of storytelling and dialogue.

We aim to raise $10,000 through this event to support our work in 2024.

Since the beginning of the year, the Out In Schools team has:

  • Delivered 40 presentations (32 for youth, 8 for adults/educators)
  • Reached 911 youth, and 412 educators and adults
  • Gone on our first rural tour of the year to the Sunshine Coast in February!

Connecting with 2SLGBTQIA+ youth is always a highlight for our team. But increasingly, we are receiving anti-gay and anti-trans pushback. In this climate, the education and authentic storytelling that Out In Schools provides is essential to combat the misinformation and hatred facing 2SLGBTQIA+ youth at home and in their schools and communities. 

Out In Schools does the work on the ground to reach queer, trans and Two Spirit youth across BC. With your support, we will continue to deliver this life-saving education. Help us reach our goal of $10,000 by donating when you buy your ticket!
