Behind the Scenes of NYAST

In queer communities, the people we choose to be our family are never random. For queer activists, these friendships often look into working relationships that address the issues facing our community.

Both of us met each other when we lived on the same floor freshman year. We never thought we would be friends, nevertheless cofounders of this organization. However, we had noticed a lack of sex education available that not only mentioned but affirmed queer and trans people. We knew we had to do something about it.

Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to be the subject of a backpack documentary by student filmmaker McKinnon deKuyper (@McKinnondeKuyper). Check out Not Your Average here.
