DESCRIPTION

As a prelude to International Anti-Homophobia Day 2011, Windsor Pride Community and Pescador Arte, LLC are proud to present "Just Because I Am"

SYNOPSIS - JUST BECAUSE I AM ( A documentary on homophobia and youth)

JUST BECAUSE I AM takes the viewer through the inspirational journey of an LBGT youth group, led by an enthusiastic gay mentor, who together give a response to homophobia by creating a performance on love, respect andtolerance. While experiencing the transformative energy of art and the empowering effects of self-affirmation, these youngsters also face aggravating homophobic reactions unleashed by their collective coming out in this traditionally conservative (USA-Canada) border city.
