Tell us your story!
Calling all trans and gender non-conforming Vermonters for a new special speaking project for Pride! On Friday, September 7th we will feature 5-7 minute stories from trans people around the state in a Moth Radio Hour style storytelling session. We will be featuring moments of trans validation & joy. Speakers will be paid a small speaking award, invited to a free dinner with each other & with trans event organizers, and will be given community-based housing if they want to stay the night and attend Pride festivities on Saturday, September 8. We are looking for a diversity of voices in regards to age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, stage of transition (or not), disability, veteran status, home town, and current location in Vermont.
To submit a proposal, please email 1 paragraph about a moment of joy and/or validation in your life, along with a short bio, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals must be submitted by Tuesday, July 31st for consideration.
