I Heart My Sexuality is a video project that aims to highlight the strengths of LGBTQ youth, instill pride in the community, and tell stories of healthy relationships.

The IMPACT team captured the personal interviews during the 2010 Chicago Pride Festival and Dyke March. The videos were created in partnership with BeyondMedia Education, an award winning non-profit organization dedicated to using media for social change.

We set up a booth at the 2010 Chicago Pride Festival and asked people to write on card why they love their sexuality.

These images are the first phase of the I heart my sexuality campaign. Check back on September 21, 2010 to see the first three videos from our interviews.
