Don't Forget!

PUT THIS ON THE MAP is still raising funds to tour the country and start reteaching gender and sexuality. Teenagers speaking to their peers about empowering themselves will do more for our youth than the "It Gets Better" Project could ever hope for (though I do support "It Gets Better" and its mission). So if you have a dollar to spare, please send it their way!

Fed up with a lack of queer visibility, twenty-six young people in Seattle’s eastside suburbs weave together this ground-breaking narrative of shifting identities and social change. PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is the compelling documentary about a generation of young people reteaching gender and sexual identity. From getting beat-up in a schoolyard to being picked up as a runaway, youth profess expertise in an honest evaluation of their schools and families. An interview based documentary where the realities of social isolation and violence are woven together with optimistic portraits of fearlessness and liberation. In an open and honest exploration of education, family, and community, PUT THIS ON THE MAP moves an audience from self-reflection to action.

PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is decisively instructive for improving schools and communities for queer/transgender young people.
