Fierce Pride collaborated with Media Arts Collaborative Charter School  middle school GSAFE (Gender and Sexuality Alliance For Everyone) to create this short film. Fierce Pride researched best practices for schools to reduce violence against LGBTQ students, which in turn reduces their rates of using substances including tobacco. The students wanted to tell teachers, administrators, and other adults how these policies impact them, and what happens when schools do not have these policies or do not follow them.
