As you set out for Ithaka
hope your road is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.

DRAW WITH ME is a film directed by Constantine Venetopoulos in collaboration with THE TREVOR PROJECT about the coming out journey of a youth who identifies as trans and about how their art became their outlet for self expression, while on the complex journey of having to be yourself in a world that at times struggles with diversity.

They say we are two people. We are the person we are with the memories we keep. And we are the person we are with the memories we have forgotten.
