 ABOUT OUTLOUD 

Schools across Greater Manchester have the opportunity to raise awareness and understanding of diversity and discrimination through Hive North's annual theatre-in-education play and workshop, seen by over 50,000 young people. 

 

OUTLOUD has a proven track record of changing attitudes and raising awareness of homophobia, bullying and discrimination. The play is also designed to empower young LGBT+ people by celebrating diversity and discussing LGBT+ role models.

 

Ofsted recently visited a school that receives the play OUTLOUD every year. In the Ofsted report, it was noted:

 

'The values, ethos and policies of the school in regard to homophobic bullying are very well reinforced.'

 

Developed in partnership with Healthy Schools (NHS Manchester), the play uses real interviews with young people in Greater Manchester and is updated annually to give a true reflection of their thoughts and experiences.

Previous evaluations show that the play has an immediate impact upon young people. Before the play, 21% of young people would challenge or report homophobia or homophobic bullying in schools. Following the play/workshop, 93% of pupils would challenge or report homophobia or homophobic bullying. (Based on 2,356 responses)

The best theatre-in-education I've seen. It was very well targeted and got the message across

The actors were really skilled in engaging with the students…so much more beneficial than a classroom session

The play helps the students to understand the effects of bullying and the way they communicate with each other
