Straightlaced unearths how popular pressures around gender and sexuality are confining American teens. The film shares the perspectives of teens who self-identify as straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual or questioning and represent all points of the gender spectrum. Their stories reflect a diversity of experiences, demonstrating how gender role expectations and homophobia are interwoven, and illustrating the different ways that these expectations connect with culture, race and class. Panel: • Rabbi Gila Ruskin, Temple Adas Shalom • Vera Kurlantzik, MS, President, Mindful For You • Jill Hollander, MSW, Acute Care Social Worker • Gidon Feen, George Washington University Student In partnership with JQ Baltimore, Keshet, JCC. This program is dedicated to the the memory of Neely Snyder, (z”l), co-founder and former co-chair of JQ Baltimore, Jewish LGBTQ Outreach and Support.
