Dear Safe Schools Coalition members and friends,

Seeking "Out" Superintendents, Principals & Teachers For Film On LGBT Stereotypes [from the makers of It's Elementary and That's a Family!]

*****************************

Women's Educational Media, the filmmakers behind It's Elementary and That's a Family!, is currently producing a new documentary for high school students that will debunk stereotypes about LGBT people. We have been interviewing gay and lesbian firefighters, ministers and car racers to name a few, and now we're looking for LGBT superintendents, principals and teachers who want to be in the film.

We need people who are willing to be interviewed on camera, at home, at school, with friends or family, doing daily activities, etc.... People of color are particularly encouraged to apply.

The documentary will be shown to high school and middle school students around the country as part of our "Respect for All" media series. (For more information about our films, visit http://www.womedia.org.)

If you are interested in possibly being interviewed for our documentary, send an e-mail to jeng@womedia.org and let us know a little bit about yourself:your name, address, e-mail, age, job and any other stereotype-breaking aspects about you.

Please attach a photo if you can.

Also, please feel free to forward this any other e-mail lists that you think appropriate.

THANK YOU!
