The genesis of Rantan Productions'

To break the code of silence
and increase discussion about gay hate crime in Australia, Rantan Productions
has also produced the Outing Gay Hate Awareness Kit - a
fully developed resource to raise awareness and understanding of gay hate
In a series of 6 workshops,
detailed in a comprehensive 70-page Facilitators Manual, participants
examine the key issues. Homophobia, GLBT visibility, the random nature
of gay hate attacks, non-reporting by survivors and the consequences for
GLBT people of behaviour monitoring, are all explored. Compelling video
inserts also assist to generate workshop discussions and aid awareness.
Through greater understanding
of these issues the general community will be better able to respond to
the special needs of gay hate crime survivors. The Outing Gay Hate
Awareness Kit will also increase awareness within the general
community about the serious implications of unaddressed and unchallenged
homophobic attitudes in school-age youth.
