Jumping to Conclusions

Jumping to Conclusions is part of a series of short films known as Snippets.

These Snippets are intended to be used when delivering community engagement/education workshops.

This one is about two young women who see a poster for an ice skating event. One thinks the main performer is very attractive and is eager to go. She drags her friend to the event. However, seeing the performer’s costume, this second woman warns her that the skater might not be interested.

Facilitators can use the questions listed below to encourage young people to express their opinions — even though a description has been provided above there is not necessarily a correct answer!

Using your own words, describe what you saw happen in the film.

Can tough men be gay?
