Did you attend High School in South Florida? Were you bullied?

Were you gay or bullied in high school?

 
Documentary filmmakers at Downtown Loft Studio in Fort Lauderdale are seeking LGBT people who attended high school in South Florida between 1976 and 2013.

 
Here are the details from studio spokesman Donald Cavanaugh:
The award winning filmmakers at Downtown Loft Studio in Fort Lauderdale are producing a documentary on how the academic environment of LGBT students in South Florida schools has changed over the years. The documentary will be shown on television, at film festivals, and distributed worldwide.

 
If you were gay or perceived to be gay while attending a Broward, Miami-Dade or Palm Beach middle or high school between 1976 and 2013 and would like to share your story of feeling isolated, or even being bullied or assaulted, we would like to hear from you. The mission of the documentary is to present how the South Florida schools have evolved, and continue to evolve, from the era of Anita Bryant.

 
Our hope is that the documentary and the personal stories of students and educators contained within our film will heighten awareness of issues that gay students encounter and will help future generations to live free and accepted lifestyles.

 
For more information or to discuss your story for possible inclusion, please email info@downtownloftstudio.com or call Donald Cavanaugh at 561-543-0373.
