I love this!!!!!
This video launched two nights ago, from an absolutely amazing group of young people. Entitled “Re-Teaching Gender and Sexuality”, the video features young queer people sharing their thoughts on American culture/hetero/cissexism, and the real life experiences of queer youth. It’s only 3 minutes long, but the producers of the video also have a documentary, called “Put THIS On The Map”, which voices the experiences of queer young people in Suburban Washington State. The team of queer youth educators associated with the film travel and do trainings in places that range from high school classrooms to hospitals to 200+ person mental health training conferences. The entire team affiliated with PTOTM are incredible, incredible people, and this video only serves to highlight the amazing things that queer youth are capable of, and the ways that we are engaging to take charge of our own lives. Help put us on the map? :)
