The Future Perfect Project Community Q&A

Lawrence Public Library

Description

Curious about what LGBTQIA+ all means? Join artists James Lecesne and Ryan Amador for a presentation and discussion about their work with Queer Youth across the United States. This is a forum designed especially for teens, parents, guardians, teachers, and anyone who believes queer youth deserve to be safe, seen, and celebrated. James and Ryan work with a wide spectrum of queer-aligned youth from around the country, providing them with safe spaces, guidance to create performative art, and opportunities to express their vision of a better world.

JAMES LECESNE wrote the short film TREVOR, which won an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short and inspired the founding of The Trevor Project, the only nationwide 24-hour suicide prevention and crisis intervention Lifeline for LGBT and Questioning youth.  He has written three novels for young adults, and created The Letter Q, a collection of letters by Queer writers written to their younger selves.
