    SHOUT is delivered annually with the support of volunteers, if you think you could spare time to support the festival please get in touch with Adam Carver at Birmingham LGBT. adamcarver@blgbt.org

  • Audience & Community

    The LGBT community is diverse and crosses all backgrounds and demographics.  SHOUT will continue to provide opportunities for modern audience groups to access content and work that resonates with them. 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.
