I've been called a faggot: Middle Tennessee Students Talk About The Power of Words

On January 27th, GLSEN Middle Tennessee's Jump-Start Student Leadership Team hosted "Voices on Video." In recognition and support of No Name-Calling Week, our team organized this event for local high school students which featured a creative video production workshop led by their our from Contrast Visuals & Consulting, Nathan Thompson and Scott Arnold. Nathan is a 16-time Emmy Award winning videographer and the 2012 National Press Photographer Association's National Photographer of the Year, and Scott has worked for 20 years as a television journalist and as an anchor/reporter for the #1 rated CBS affiliate in the nation. With their incredible expertise and guidance, the students came up with a concept, developed a script, and filmed this video. Take a look and see why GLSEN Middle Tennessee is committed to making schools safe for ALL students!
