Description

With a fearless look at a highly charged subject, Straightlaced unearths how popular pressures around gender and sexuality are confining American teens. 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.

From girls confronting media messages about culture and body image to boys who are sexually active just to prove they aren’t gay, this fascinating array of students opens up with brave, intimate honesty about the toll that deeply held stereotypes and rigid gender policing have on all our lives. Filmed in the same intimate style as That’s a Family! and Let’s Get Real, the heart of Straightlaced is candid interviews with more than 50 teens from diverse backgrounds.

The 67 minute DVD includes full length film, Spanish/English subtitles, interview with the producers, and trailers from other GroundSpark films.

Can be used with 160 page printed curriculum guide, featuring valuable lesson plans, discussion starters, classroom activities and handouts for teachers to use in conjunction with the film, as well as an interactive curriculum disc, complete with PDF version of the printed guide.
