"2SLGBTQ+ Youth Voices of Scarborough" Film
The film launched on Monday, February 24, and shows the diversity of a 2SLGBTQ+ community which, until the space came along, had nowhere to meet and talk.
The film captures youth at Toby’s Place, a drop-in centre in the basement of the Birchcliff Bluffs United Church. They speak about gender identity, sexuality, and other subjects. Scarborough’s queer youth “aren’t a monolith” but “a lot of smaller things” and very diverse, says Paisley Sears, who edited the film and shot most of the video footage.
