Out! Alive Video Contest!

Can you make videos? Would you like to win $100 or $250 and be Nova Scotia famous?  Here's your big chance!

Out! Alive, is hosting a video contest. The group is inviting people from the Nova Scotia community to create a 1-minute maximum video raising awareness about drug use in the LGBTQ* community, or resources that will help those struggling (such as Capital Health's Addiction Program, Community supports, or family & friends). Previously, Out! Alive has done their own awareness campaigns and LGBTQ* training for addictions counsellors, and is now providing an opportunity to the community to have their say on the impacts of drug use, and the importance of supportive resources.

The stressors of homophobia and transphobia contribute to an increased risk of substance misuse in the LGBTQ* community.  Out! Alive wants the community to speak out about this issue and create conversations about how we can get the help we need if we think someone's life is being messed up by drugs.

Your video could look like this, this, or even this!

Video creators are invited to post their submissions on YouTube and submit them by October 19th 2014, with first prize winning $250, and second $100. Please read full contest information and fine print - the links are below.

Out! Alive is an alliance of community members raising awareness about drug, alcohol, tobacco, and gambling issues in the LGBTQ community
