We can never forget that Gay youth is our future and we have to teach them well. Therefore, I was so happy to see that Campus Pride (CampusPride.org) and Wolfe Video (WolfeVideo.com) announced the updated 2013 edition of their annual LGBT Youth Movie Guide showcasing a selection of recommended lesbian, gay, bi and transgender (LGBT) movies on DVD and digital for college and university students.
The oldest and largest exclusive distributor of LGBT films, Wolfe Video has been a trusted community source for LGBT movies since 1985 - the company’s newest initiative is the worldwide LGBT movie-watching platform, WolfeOnDemand.com. Campus Pride was founded in 2001 and is the leading national nonprofit organization serving LGBT and ally college students and campus groups. The annual LGBT Movie Guide provides suggested films and resources to bring quality LGBT movies to campuses across the US.
"Colleges and universities are always looking for entertaining, educational and diverse films to bring whsf this3to campus," said Campus Pride executive director Shane Windmeyer. "Our updated movie guide showcases a great array of LGBT feature films and documentaries."
In addition to the LGBT Youth Movie Guide, Wolfe Video also provided film screenings of the multi-award winning films The Wise Kids and Mosquita y Mari at the Campus Pride Summer Leadership Camp this past July.
"It’s not easy for LGBT youth and college students to find the movies that speak to their experiences," said Wolfe president Maria Lynn. "We’re thrilled to partner with Campus Pride to help the LGBT students who want and need to see these movies."
