From the four-part Canadian series Fresh Talk: Youth & Sexuality , Educate Your Attitude features a series of powerful first-person stories addressed directly to the viewer.

This snapshot of early ’90s LGBTQ life features young men and women, ages 15 to 24, who share their thought-provoking, humorous, and sometimes painful reflections on growing up. With remarkable candor, youth voice feelings that are often left unspoken or unacknowledged. They speak from a wide range of experiences about love and fantasies, identity, race, relationships, masturbation, peer pressure, media images, pornography, sexism, sexual abuse, STDs, living with AIDS, condoms, safer sex, and more.
