Where it all began

EMBRACE KIDS is an uplifting film by Taryn Brumfitt, which brings together a vibrant collection of stories from young people and famous friends alike, who share their experiences about body image, bullying, gender identity, advocacy, representation and more. You can explore the film’s themes in more detail with the Embrace Kids Classroom Program - available FREE for primary and secondary teachers!
