Abstract
This DVD addresses name-calling, homophobia and stereotyping. Designed for Grades 4-8, it is intended to start discussion to teach children about the negative effects of certain words and bullying behaviour. In the video, children's paintings magically transform into two animated adventures of Anta, Habib and Jeroux as they deal with homophobia and bullying at school. Woven into these short animated stories are film clips of an actual class discussion between an equity educator and elementary school students. In a lively talk about why names are bad and hurtful, stereotypes about gays and lesbians are dismantled and new views are put into place by the children themselves. Young viewers are challenged to think about their responses to people and families different from their own.
