It is designed to serve rising 10th, 11th and 12th LGBTQ+ students. A presentation of the Belcourt’s education and engagement program and Oasis Center’s Just Us, Reel Proud explores LGBTQ+ life in film and focuses on representation on both sides of the camera.
Students will meet at the Belcourt Tue-Thu, Jun 13-15, 10am-1:30pm to watch films and discuss with their peers.
