About Our Partnership

When our staff first saw Out & Around back in 2015, we immediately knew it was a story that must be shared with LGBTQ+ people everywhere; not only is it an entertaining adventure story, but it’s also an empowering account of LGBTQ+ resilience in an often complicated world. And with that, a partnership was born.

Out & Around and the It Gets Better Project have been working to share the film far and wide for the past 3 years. To date, it has been screened at dozens of film festivals, community events, schools, Pride gatherings, and more around the globe.

We also created the Out & Around EduGuide together. With this guide, you can help us bring this amazing film into even more special settings like classrooms or GSA meetings. It contains additional information about the film, discussion questions, project outlines, suggestions for further learning, and more.

Download the guide today by clicking the white button at the top of this page – or click here for versions in Spanish and Portuguese – and start your journey with Jenni and Lisa as they meet LGBTQ+ superheroes around the globe!
