The FYRE Media Justice Camps are dynamic leadership development opportunities for Southern LGBTQQ youth of color, ages 18-25 interested in reproductive justice. Participants engage in interactive workshops about reproductive justice, media justice, and art-based activism while gaining the skills needed to create liberatory media.
During the 2014 FYRE Media Justice Camp, hosted in partnership with Advocates for Youth, 10 youth of color came together from three Southern states to develop short films and blogs that touched on various issues important to them as Queer and Trans youth of color living in the South. These topics included abortion access and stigma, violence against Queer and Trans People of Color and Women of Color, and Medicaid expansion.
