Synopsis

PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is the compelling 34-minute documentary about a generation of young people reteaching gender and sexual identity. Fed up with a lack of queer visibility, twenty-six young people in Seattle’s eastside suburbs weave together this ground-breaking narrative of shifting identities and social change. From getting beat-up in a schoolyard to being picked up as a runaway, queer youth exercise courage daily. PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is an intimate invitation into stories of social isolation and violence, fearlessness and liberation. Professing expertise over their experiences, queer youth provide a candid evaluation of their schools, families, and communities and move an audience from self-reflection to action.
