PRIDE not Prejudice: LGBTQ Activists Using VR to Open Minds and Hearts

Room XK

Pride Foundation aims to expand opportunities and advance full equality for LGBTQ people across the U.S. Northwest. A year ago, Oculus welcomed Pride Foundation and filmmaker Jesse Ayala to the VR For Good Creators Lab program, and the ensuing series called “Authentically Us” provides an introduction to three people in the transgender community.

 In this session, Pride Foundation filmmakers will explore the impact of their work using 360-video, and share insights for creators and story-tellers who want to partner with nonprofits and social entrepreneurs to address social issues.
