This is a 4-part online storytelling workshop series facilitated by Sabrina Burress, with the Augusta Resources for Resilience, Opportunity, and Wellness- ARROW Project. 

Why do we tell our stories? To connect, to process and/or heal, to learn, or even to teach and inspire. More than ever, our community needs to hear our voices. Craft your own story by registering for our online storytelling workshop series.

Our Queer Voices: loud, proud, and onstage

June 29, 2021 at 7PM

An evening of stories with community storytellers and Q&A discussion.

Join us for our Pride Month event, “Queer Voices: loud, proud, and onstage”! It will be an evening of stories where community members will share a story from their lived experience. The program will conclude with a Q&A discussion about the journey to finding our stories, the power of sharing them, and the powerful themes that connect us all during Pride month. It will be joyful and celebratory! We welcome you to join in on the dialogue as well.

This event is presented by a partnership between Staunton Pride and ShenanArts and highlights our collective missions in building community through shared experiences. We are grateful for the financial support of the Better Together grant from the Staunton Downtown Development Association.

 

Some stories may contain mature themes, so this event is recommended for mature audiences.

For more info and to get tickets: go to our show info at ShenanArts.

At the end, we'll come back together for an open group chat, and we'll discuss where things are with Staunton Pride 2021. Hope to see y'all there!
