Shout – Birmingham

We recognise that the LGBT community is wonderfully diverse, crossing all backgrounds and demographics.  SHOUT will continue to provide opportunities for contemporary audiences to access content and work that actively engages with their experience and identities. Over the years, SHOUT has acted as a conduit to examine the themes that are relevant to region’s LGBT community.  It has used umbrella terms such as visibility / invisibility and generations / legacies that allows artists and audiences to explore what it means to identify as LGBT in a contemporary context.
