This annual tradition teaches LGBTQ and allied youth how to write, storyboard, film, edit, and produce their own films, all from scratch! Youth films are usually about some part of their experience as a queer teen or ally, but they don't have to be. We've had students make music videos, zombie films, experimental pieces, soundscapes, black and white films, and dozens more.
Check out some of last year's films by clicking the descriptions below!
I write to you regarding the recent graduation ceremonies at Twin Peaks Charter Academy. It was reported in the Daily Camera and national news sources that a student at Twin Peaks, where you serve as Board Chair, was not allowed to give his valedictorian speech at graduation and denied public recognition of his academic honors solely on the basis of his sexual orientation, which was contextually indicated in his proposed speech.

Evan Young was unable to give his speech at graduation, despite graduating with a 4.48 GPA as his class' Valedictorian. There has been a lot of discussion about this "controversial" speech, however we're all glad that now everyone can hear Evan's truth and know he didn't want anything more than to share a special moment with his graduating class of 30.
