“Earnest, real and relatable. This documentary is a must-see for everyone, as it gives a platform to a group that is not to be underestimated. The pure bravery and wisdom of these young adults shines through every second and they could absolutely be role models for their peers and elders alike. Room to Grow doesn’t try and stuff things into neat little boxes and isn’t overly concerned with labels, which makes its tone feel like a breath of fresh air on-par with the attitude of many Gen Zers. “ -Taylor Gates, Starry Magazine
“Room To Grow is a documentary that should be shown in every school and especially shown to every queer kid out there who is just trying to understand who they are and if there is anyone else out there like them. The answer is ‘Yes!’ Uplifting and inspiring, Room To Grow will have you standing up and cheering at the end of the film for these amazing and brave kids! If only I had a documentary like this when I was a queer kid in the 1980s.” -Ali Naro, OverTheRainbow.com
