We are always on the lookout for new independent film to share in our presentations. In particular, we are looking for films that speak to queer themes and issues and are appropriate for ages 13-18. We are committed to paying filmmakers for educational use of their work.
Homophobia and transphobia impacts everyone, not just queer, trans, and Two Spirit youth. Our programs combat the root causes of homophobic and transphobic oppression through meaningful representation on film, and in classrooms with our team of facilitators. Our presentations reduce stigma, open hearts, and change minds.
