Created by and for trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary and allies from GAP’s SupaFriends LGBTQ media program, this thriller tells the story of how Brave, a racial justice activist and filmmaker, responds to the loss of his ex-girlfriend Kelly, a trans justice organizer, and grapples with his own guilt about hiding their relationship. This film tackles the epidemic of transphobic violence and the silence around the murders of trans women.
Breaking the Pipeline
A 14 min youth-produced short film that calls for restorative justice as an alternative method to the unjust zero tolerance policies and over-policing that students face in New York City public schools.
Produced by the youth organizers of YMPJ's PEERS campaign between October 2009 and March 2010 through GAP's Community Media in Action Program.
Many of the statistics used in the film are from the Safety With Dignity by the New York Civil Liberties Union, which you can find here: nyclu.org/content/safety-with-dignity-alternatives-over-policing-of-schools-2009
