These LGBTQ youth stories prove that as much as we have gained so much ground as a community these past few years, there is still much to accomplish for equality. But we are counting our blessings.

WARNING: This program contains scenes of bullying and a suggestion of self-harm.

Our 2017 Shorts Programs are made possible through the generosity of longtime ImageOut supporters David D. Emert and Jon P. Templin.
