      Out In Schools is hosting a two-hour fundraiser screening of Summer Qamp on April 10, plus a drag performance by Call Me Mother winner drag king and musician Toddy, as well as a youth runway.

      The documentary, by director Jen Markowitz, is set in rural Alberta at camp fYrefly, a safe haven for LGBTQIA2S+ teens—far removed from the daily oppressive political discourse surrounding queerness and gender identity—giving audiences a vision of the joy that a summer away with friends can provide.

      Attendees are encouraged to dress up in summer camp attire and work it on the runway, which will be hosted by Toddy after the screening.

      Tickets sales and donations will benefit Out In Schools—a 2SLGBTQIA+ education program conceived in Vancouver that travels across British Columbia.
