No Straight Lines

Take Action!

We are in an LGBTQIA+ State of Emergency!

Here are some steps you can take to make a difference, and promote LGBTQIA+
visibility & pride:

 Host a Screening and Discussion
Watch No Straight Lines with your friends together at a home, online, place of worship, to name a few. Or at a college campus, workplace, public library, or community center. Encourage a discussion.

  Host a Screening followed by a Drink & Draw event
This is a great way for folks who want to draw their own comics along with others and a nice beverage. First watch the film, and then enjoy a relaxing conversation while drawing with other novices or accomplished artists. The power of self-representation is huge! And don’t forget: No straight lines!

Buy the film for your campus library or alma mater
This is a great way to make the film available in perpetuity to inspire queer youth on college campuses.

Book a Speaker
Schedule a filmmaker or an artist featured in the film as a guest speaker,
Please write to us to arrange an event with one of the filmmakers or artists in the film.

Or schedule an activist to speak on one of the issues raised in the film: censorship, queer history, DIY art making, and more.

Join the fight against censorship in the U.S. today:

Help raise funds for your local LGBTQIA+ youth group:
