Presented by The Get REAL Movement
WHY DO OUR PRESENTATIONS WORK?
Three reasons: we are close in age, we bring perspectives from the LBGTQ+ and straight communities, and the stories we tell are honest and accessible. We believe friendliness, humour and honest stories are the keys to a safe and stimulating environment. Because of this, we get rave reviews no matter where we go: small towns, big cities; public schools, private schools and catholic schools – friendliness is universal.
WHAT GOES INTO A PRESENTATION?
A lot of heart. We bring a mixed group of speakers – both LGTBQ+ and straight – to show multiple perspectives. We incorporate everything from educational info-graphs, original videos (which have been featured on CTV and Global news), and, of course, our own personal stories. We end with interactive activities relating to sharing stories and appreciating others’ and their struggles, as well as an anonymous Q&A session where students can ask us anything!
