Put This On the Map: documentary screening and panel discussion


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 a quest for social change. From getting beat-up in a schoolyard to being picked up as a runaway, queer youth exercise courage daily. PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is an intimate invitation into their stories of social isolation and violence, fearlessness and liberation. Professing expertise over their experiences, queer youth provide a candid evaluation of their schools, families, and communities and move an audience from self-reflection to action.

An award-winning 34-minute documentary, PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is a tool for teachers and trainers, community groups and centers of faith, universities faculties and service organizations.
