On the June 16th edition of Your Call, how do we create safe and affirming environments for queer youth?
This year's Frameline Film Festival showcases diverse stories of queer youth -- of their resilience and the power of love in their lives. What are the challenges young LGBTQ people face today? How has the reality of being young and gay changed since Frameline began 40 years ago? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Alexis Whitham, Director of Distribution & Educational Programming for Frameline

Joey Gonzalez-Ruiz, works with outLoud, a project of Youth Radio

Jimmy Zhang, SFUSD community health outreach worker at Burton High
