About 'For Crying Out Loud'

The 'For Crying Out Loud' campaign is a primary prevention campaign aiming to shine a light on the sexual violence and harassment experienced by LGBTQIA+ students at university and other tertiary institutions, and calls for social change to end violence experienced by LGBTQIA+ communities.

Why 'For Crying Out Loud'?

The use of this idiom expresses the frustration of LGBTQIA+ community about the disproportionate burden of sexual violence and harassment they experienced, the ongoing social issues that perpetuate violence towards LGBTQIA+ folk, and the erasure and silencing of queer relationships in media and campaigns.
