Out In Schools

Homophobia and bullying are serious issues facing today’s youth, particularly queer youth. By bringing queer films to local high schools to facilitate discussion with youth on bullying, homophobia and stereotypes, Out In Schools gives youth a safe space to explore these issues. Out In Schools aims to increase understanding through education to combat the issues threatening the safety of our classrooms for all students.
