Out in Schools

Photographic portrait series of Vancouver's LGBTQ youth leaders.

In the the summer of 2014, I was asked to shoot a series of portraits of Out in Schools’ youth outreach facilitators. Out in Schools brings fresh and relevant films into classrooms to facilitate dialogue about the reality of LGBTQ youth experience. Youth learn the impacts of homophobia, transphobia and other forms of discrimination. I wanted to ensure each queer youth leaders’ diversity, talents and personalities were visibly communicated in the photographs.
