With a fearless look at a highly charged subject, Straightlaced unearths how popular pressures around gender and sexuality are confining American teens. Their stories reflect a diversity of experiences, demonstrating how gender role expectations and homophobia are interwoven, and illustrating the different ways that these expectations connect with culture, race and class. Directed by Debra Chasnoff, Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker and president of GroundSpark a national social justice media, advocacy, and education organization.
Q & A with Brittney Shepherd, associate producer and documentary filmmaker, follows the screening of the film.
