Please join us for this free screening of FIT. FIT is an energetic and passionate film following a group of secondary students in a hip hop dance class and in a world where anything negative is “gay” and boys and girls have to act in certain ways.
Chris Gibbons, Stonewall’s Senior Education Officer, said: “Overwhelming positive response to FIT as a touring play, from pupils and teachers alike, convinced us that a feature film would help every secondary school in Britain to challenge homophobic bullying. Teachers are still ill-equipped and unsure of how to deal with gay issues in their classrooms.”
Writer / director of FIT Rikki Beadle-Blair said: “‘When on tour I would ask the kids how many people thought homosexuality was wrong. In every single school the vast majority, about 80%, would put their hands up. But kids would come up after the performance and say quite openly “I walked into this room homophobic and will leave it a changed person.”
FIT will move you. Move you to action. Move you to respond. It may even move you to dance.
