The college is proud to announce It Gets Better: CCA, a video submission to the It Gets Better Project, featuring students, alumni, staff, and faculty. CCA ranks among the first -- likely the first! -- art colleges in the United States to submit an institutional video in the national campaign committed to preventing suicide among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (and queer) youth. The project uses firsthand testimonials by LGBTQ persons who share their inspirational stories about coming out, growing stronger, and finding support and happiness -- proving it does actually get better.

Audience Involvement Encouraged!

The official It Gets Better:CCA video will be played intermittently throughout the event, and following each screening will be a rotating panel that features, among many, the filmmaker (Photography student Yoni Klein), film participants, Queer/Straight Alliance representatives, and CCA administration to engage queer conversation about why this film is so important -- as well as other topics related to the queer community at CCA.

About CCA's Queer/Straight Alliance (QSA)

The QSA strives to provide a “safe space” where all individuals can be free of harassment, discrimination, isolation, judgment, or violence, or any combination thereof, that occurs because of who they are, and to raise public awareness through multiple perspectives about diverse issues surrounding the LGBT community and its presence here at CCA.
