Meet the Family videos

A series of eight videos created by local LGBTIQAA+ youth who wanted to meet and understand the lived experiences of community members from other generations. The videos touch on topics including CisHet norms, the word ‘queer’, proud moments, and what still needs to be done to action change for future generations. The results are not only illuminating; they’ll help you see the world through completely different eyes. 

Funded by the Victorian Government in partnership with Bendigo PRIDE, Castlemaine Youth Theatre and Arena Theatre. 
Watch the Meet the Family videos here.
