Reteaching Gender and Sexuality

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 § 0

Many of you have probably heard about the It Gets Better Project, which tells LGBTQ youth through stories that their lives will get better with time. While this project has reached thousands of people, it’s also important to examine the root causes of why life is so bad for LGBTQ youth to begin with.

Below is a video that aims to do just that-it begins to examine the systemic issues and beliefs about gender and sexuality that often have such a negative impact on queer youth, while adding more queer voices into the mix.

If you’ve got a few minutes-watch it. And spread it. We can bring about change, but a dialogue needs to spring from somewhere. And this video is a pretty great place to start.
