Recommended by the BCTF Social Justice team and on order for our DVD collection, Straightlaced includes the perspectives of teens who self-identify as straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual or questioning and represents all points of the gender spectrum. With courage and unexpected humor, these students open up their lives to the camera: choosing between “male” and “female” deodorant; deciding whether to go along with anti-gay taunts in the locker room; having the courage to take ballet; avoiding the restroom so they won’t get beaten up; or mourning the suicide of a classmate. It quickly becomes clear that just about everything teens do requires thinking about gender and sexuality. Straightlaced offers both teens and adults a way out of anxiety, fear and violence and points the way toward a more inclusive, empowering culture.

The National - Bullied, Battered & Bruised - DVD
Comprised of three segments on the topic of bullying in schools. The first segment looks at Teulon Collegiate (Manitoba) where parents of bullied children were desperate to have an uncooperative school system deal with the problem and Seaview Community School (Port Moody, B.C.) where a zero-tolerance program was implemented. The second segment is a discussion segment on bullying with experts moderated by Peter Mansbridge. The third segment returns to Teulon to see how the school board eventually handled the problem.
