The difficulties of adolescence are legion; add to that the knowledge that you are -- or might be -- gay or lesbian and you have a recipe for extraordinary difficulty. The video Gay Youth is designed for high-school-age kids who face these often terrifying circumstances. The video aims at unraveling homophobic attitudes and behavior in the school setting. Just as the gay or lesbian teen needs to be dealt with fairly and compassionately, homophobes also require the patience to dig down to the fear and hatred that drives their negative behavior. A great tool for teaching tolerance and coping skills to children in high schools and older-teen youth programs.
