“Diversity in the Meadow” (“La diversité est dans le pré” in French) is an initiative funded by the Bureau de lutte contre l'homophobie et la transphobie of ministère de la Justice du Québec. This project is composed of two parts: a video component and a resource component.
The video component aims to produce a series of seven short documentaries of four (4) to six (6) minutes in seven different regions of Quebec. The videos allow one to discover the history and reality of people from sexual or gender-diverse backgrounds who have decided to reside in one of the selected regions.
The goal of this project is to offer a positive counter-discourse to the prejudices that persist according to which there are few, or no, people from sexual or gender-diverse backgrounds outside of large urban centers and that LGBTQ+ people can’t thrive in rural areas.
The project will be broadcast between the 5th of April, 2021, and the 21st of May, 2021.
The project will be done in partnership with organizations that work in the following selected regions:
- Coalition d'aide à la diversité sexuelle [➦] (Abitibi)
- Le JAG [➦] (Montérégie)
- Mains BSL [➦] (Bas-du-Fleuve)
- Le Néo [➦] (Lanaudière)
- LGBT+ Baie-des-Chaleurs [➦] (Gaspésie)
- Jeunesse Idem [➦] (Ottawa)
- Trans-Mauricie [➦] (Mauricie)
