STREAMING: What Do You Know?
What Do You Know? Six to Twelve Year-olds Talk about Gays and Lesbians is an award-winning, 13-minute film produced by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Welcoming Schools Project.
The film features students from Alabama and Massachusetts discussing what they hear about LGBTQ topics at school, and how they’d like teachers to address hurtful name-calling and harassment.
“You cannot watch the film What Do You Know? without being impressed with, and sometimes surprised by, the knowledge and wisdom of the students featured in the film.”
— Bill Kowba, Superintendent, San Diego Unified School District
