Gr 9 Up-- This engrossing video follows three white middle-class Canadian teens as they deal with their homosexuality: two gays, Adam and Richard, and one lesbian Adina. They attend Triangle, Canada's only high school for homosexual, bisexual, and transgender teens. Along with academics, Triangle provides friendship, counseling, and group discussion which helps the three accept who they are and find some stability in their situations. Richard's difficulties include dealing with his homophobic family and adjusting after his lover rejects him. He drops out to work at a beauty salon. Adam, who had been ridiculed in school, feels he has gained the strength to come out and to return to the regular high school. Adina's Rabbi father's rejection turns to acceptance as he learns how to better understand her and finds out about her academic achievements. She will return to Triangle in the fall. The video does an excellent job of capturing the anguish these teens feel. Family situations are hard-hitting but insightful. The video can be used in psychology and sociology classes, as well as in counseling sessions with homosexual students.
