Ugly Ducklings Campaign: A Resource for Adults and Youth
By Hardy Girls Healthy Women, Greater Waterville Community for Children & Youth and Carolyn Gage
This multi-media resource is designed to educate and inspire people to take action against the bullying of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
The resource is the result of a 2006 partnership, when the creators teamed with playwright Carolyn Gage to stage her award-winning play, Ugly Ducklings.
The documentary film highlights homophobia, bullying and harassment. It weaves together scenes from the rehearsal and play with interviews with the female actors, parents and local experts on gender issues. The play also focuses on issues that lead some to suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts.
The Community Action Kit includes:
- Documentary film
- Discussion questions
- Resources for creating safe, equal space for LGBTQ youth
The goals for Ugly Ducklings are to:
- Educate and inspire people to take action against bullying
- Protect children from the violence that can lead to self-harm, including suicide
- Ugly Ducklings Campaign
