Exclusively for PFLAG Chapters: Bring Straightlaced to Your Community!


PFLAG is partnering with GroundSpark to spark a dialogue about youth and gender pressures with their new film Straightlaced—How Gender’s Got Us All Tied Up. The latest documentary in the Respect For All Project series by Academy-Award winner Debra Chasnoff, Straightlaced takes a powerful and intimate look at how popular pressures around gender and sexuality are shaping the lives of American teens. The film proudly showcases the diverse and unscripted voices of more than 50 youth from a wide range of high schools across the country who speak with breathtaking honesty, insight, and humor about gender roles and the struggle to be who they really are.

For more information about Straightlaced, including a trailer, please visit the official website for the film, online here.

While the film is not yet on sale to the public, GroundSpark is offering the film for free to PFLAG chapters to host public screenings in their communities. GroundSpark staff will work with you to host an event that sparks dialogue, raises funds, and inspires your community.

To start organizing a screening, contact GroundSpark’s National Outreach Manager, Ryan Schwartz, at rschwartz@groundspark.org.
