HOW IT STARTED
The spark behind the Playbright
We are a team of researchers at McGill University interested in using creative methods to better understand and support diverse LGBTQ2S+ experiences.
We partnered with the National Theatre School of Canada to create Playbright, a program designed to support aspiring LGBTQ2S+ youth interested in playwriting AND gain insight into LGBTQ2S+ youth experiences to provide better resources.
