Having an Impact
At the 2015 SLAMbassador, the United Kingdom’s biggest youth slam poetry event, winner Jay Hulme shared his experience of being stereotyped and bullied as a transgender teen in his spoken word poem “My Lungs.” Watch his TEDxTeen performance of “My Lungs” (00:00-03:10). At the end of his powerful performance, Hulme makes a compelling call to action to his listeners to be up-standers in the face of bullying. Spoken word is a powerful way of raising issues to a wider audience through an engaging performance.
