*Carolyn Gage, Playwright and Chanel Romney, Actor. Part of the Fall 2005 Women in the Curriculum Lunch Series. 10/5/05.

Ugly Ducklings Documentary (Community Action Kit):
Woven together through the recording of intimate discussions about homophobia, the evolution of one’s sexual orientation, and bullying and biased-based harassment, this documentary explores the actors’ own biases throughout the rehearsal process. The educational film focuses on the core message portrayed in Ugly Ducklings and highlights the deeper, more immediate realities of the play’s subjects, who tell the story of those seeking asylum from the oppression of bias-based harassment in our communities and schools. The purpose of the Film and Community Action Kit is to educate both adults and youth about bias-based harassment and to aid families, schools, and communities who wish to openly support LGBTQ youth by initiating honest dialogue and creating safe and supportive environments. “We want to educate and inspire people to take action against bias-based bullying and harassment. It is our hope that regardless of religious belief or political affiliation, we can all rally around the common goals of protecting children and youth from the harassment and violence that can lead to self-harm and suicide.” (2006, DVD)
