          "Our Voices" is about empowering New Zealand's young people to share their stories. This film aims to provide some insight into the range of issues facing our young people and to inspire people to speak up and have their voices heard. This film came out of the film workshop at JustSpeak's 2013 camp. It was made in mere hours by an amazing group of young people from all over the country. Some of the stories are real, and some are fictional though based on real experiences. We hope the film gives you some insight into the range of issues facing our young people and some inspiration to simply speak up and have your voice heard.

                  Social networking, video and photo sharing web sites are enabling a new era of cultural production. These sites, in combination with cheaper technology and free software are also radically changing the social landscape for the global GLBTI community, creating channels to disseminate our personal stories. Increasing numbers of young people are talking about their sexuality on personal blogs or through sites such as myspace and YouTube. These platforms are giving different modes of sexuality a voice and increased visibility.
