Supporting LGBTQ+ Youth with Out in schools

Over the last few years, there\'s been a shift in BC\'s schools and educators more open to talking about sexual orientation and gender identity. Informed by experience Out in Schools will speak to why LGBT2Q+ inclusions matters to teacher education, and how film, art, and the power of representation can open hearts and change minds.

Out in Schools curates films that invites youth & educators alike to step into the challenges and the triumphs of LGBT2Q+ youth.  The films debunk stereotypes, humanize LQBT2Q+ experiences and envision the next generation of LGBT2Q+  allies.
