Animated documentary in which the sunny sides of being queer are put forward in personal testimonies by youngsters falling outside the hetero standard. "There’s nothing for you to accept. I’m just here!"
In this animated documentary, queer youngsters speak candidly about what it is like to be different. Meeting certain expectations is often complicated and painful, but it also offers numerous benefits. The overwhelming feeling of solidarity with millions of other queer persons around the globe, to name one. "It sounds inflated, but it’s lifesaving to feel it’s really okay to be you. That you’re celebrated, instead of tolerated."
