What Do You Know? Six to Twelve Year-Olds Talk About Gays and Lesbians is an award-winning 13-minute film, produced by HRC, that features students from Massachusetts and Alabama discussing what they know about gay men and lesbians, what they hear at school, and what they'd like teachers to do. With perspectives ranging from basic to nuanced, these children openly share their thoughts on the words that they hear on a daily basis. We hear so much about school bullying these days that it's refreshing to have an opportunity to hear children speak thoughtfully about how they want to be treated, how they want others to be treated in their schools, and how the language we use affects how children see the world. Adults can learn a lot from the inspirational children in this beautiful film.
