This year, Shameless Magazine is a proud sponsor of Inside Out’s Queer Youth Digital Video project. In the days leading up to the Inside Out festival, Shameless will be posting trailers of some of the films on offer at the festival that may be of interest to our readers.
On Saturday May 17 at 1:00 p.m. Inside Out brings a children’s television classic to a whole new generation with the free family screening of Free to Be … You & Me.
Free to Be… You and Me is a record album and illustrated songbook for children, first released in November 1972, and later in 1974 as a television special, featuring songs and stories from celebrities. Using poetry, songs, and sketches, the basic concept was to salute values such as individuality, tolerance, and happiness with one’s identity; a major thematic message is that anyone, whether a boy or a girl, can achieve anything one wants.
