Jess and Emmi's story is just one a collection of young peoples' stories shared here and on the Think About It Project website thinkaboutitproject.org.au . Watch out for all updates on the facebook page facebook.com/thinkaboutitproject
A bunch of young people share their stories. The eight attitudes associated with the Riddle scale of homophobia are drawn upon as the young people’s voices ‘emerge’, sharing their real life experiences (of loss & love, abuse and praise, hatred and hope, isolation and equality, vulnerability and strength), in the hope that the broader community will experience these short films, and then ‘think about it’.
Over 100 people attended the launch of the Think About It Project on March 7th at La Trobe University in Shepparton, Victoria as part of the SheppARTon festival.
