The LAMP needs your help!

This holiday season, The LAMP needs your help during our annual fundraising drive. Our goal is to raise $2,850–enough for us to buy three new Macbooks to use in our workshops. With us, these computers are more than just laptops; they’re portals to teaching youth, parents and educators how to be critical media consumers. As a fully registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all of your donation is tax-deductible, and every little bit helps us reach our goal. Click below to donate!

Favorite Workshop Moment:

D.C. Vito

LAMPcamp“My favorite workshop moment took place during LAMPcamp. During our session with the male LAMPers, we explored how the media defines what it means to be a man. A couple of students were taken aback when we showed them footage of Wesley SnipesĀ in Blade, followed immediately by scenes of him as a drag queen in the movie To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. This opened up a spectacular discussion about what really does make a man, and how stereotypes are reinforced or challenged. A lot of the students said it really changed the way they look at men in media.”
