TRUE Video Project
The Center at Garden City:
Every Tuesday, 5-9 pm
LIGALY is committed to the power of youth leadership, especially when it comes to messages about health, safer sex, and anti-bullying. Because of this, LIGALY is excited to announce the kickoff of a video project for gay and bisexual Black and Latino youth and their friends!
Are you passionate about acting, singing, dancing, spoken word, or any other performance art? Do you have an interest in video editing, directing, or film production? LIGALY is offering an opportunity for youth ages 13-21 to put these skills into action by creating a series of videos aimed at youth who know that sexuality is good and fun, but might not have all the facts about how to keep themselves healthy.
