Young, Loud and Proud

Young, Loud and Proud


Program: Shorts

Blazing a new media trail, the next generation gives us a firsthand look at what it means to be young and queer today in these short films by and about queer youth.
After her essay on same-sex marriage causes controversy in her middle school, a 14-year-old girl in a conservative Ohio town decides to record her views on gays and marriage in The Essay Assignment. Outlet tells the personal stories of the teenagers who participate in a support group offered by a Bay Area youth organization. Interviews with the group’s facilitator, a young gay activist and a transgender teen address the evolution of contemporary queer issues as they’re taken on by local middle and high school students. Love Is Shit explores love and life on the Christopher Street pier, and Inside Out is one lesbian teen’s multimedia confessional of life on the streets and in shelters.
Queer Streets is a hip, gritty look at the reality of life on the street for kids with three strikes against them: They’re young, they’re gay, and they’re homeless. It’s like MTV’s “The Real World” — without the house: the true story of seven gay, lesbian and transgender youth living on the streets in New York, who agreed to have their lives taped for one summer. Find out what happens when they stop being polite, stop hiding and tell the real story of teen homelessness.
