Creating a promotional video to highlight information about the amazing work Minus18 does and show some of the organisation’s young people having fun and enjoying themselves all across Australia was a fantastic experience.
The Minus18 Crew are an amazing team and seeing how happy and confident the young people I met and filmed were I was blown away by the impact the organisation has.
We really wanted to emphasise that Minus18 provided a fun and inclusive environment for all young people, regardless of sexuality, gender, ethnicity, religion, background or any other aspect of their identity.
I spent a lot of time talking to queer young people about what was important to represent. A recurring request was emphasising being queer does not inherently mean a life of hardship or adversity. We really wanted to show that queer young people can live very happy, fulfilled lives just like any other Australian teen.
