Out: Stories of Lesbian and Gay Youth

Top of page

Out is an intimate exploration of the struggles and victories of gay and lesbian youth in Canada. Delving into the emotional, societal and familial conflicts lesbian and gay youth often face, this film breaks the damaging silence surrounding sexual orientation and sexual differences. Through explicit interviews with gay and lesbian youth from varied cultural and racial heritages, issues of discrimination as well as the compounding problems of confronting racism and sexism are sensitively addressed. Out provides awareness, understanding and hope--to gay and lesbian youth, parents, counsellors and educators.
