The eight attitudes associated with the Riddle scale of homophobia are drawn upon as the young people’s voices ‘emerge’, sharing their real life experiences (of loss & love, abuse and praise, hatred and hope, isolation and equality, vulnerability and strength), in the hope that the broader community will experience these short films, and then ‘think about it’.
More stories coming soon...

Mind the Gap is a rural and regional community engagement program funded for 2009-12 by the Department of Health. It focuses on the primary prevention of HIV, sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs) in young gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (GLBTIQ) people. The program targets both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) and non-ATSI youth aged 25 and under living in rural and regional Victoria. Mind the Gap is delivered by FPV in partnership with Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations, Centre for Adolescent Health and Youth Empowerment Against HIV/ AIDS. The supporting partners are FAR Social Enterprises, The Twenty 10 Association and the Burnett Institute.
