Join Story District and HRC Alabama on Saturday, July 16, for a free storytelling workshop, coaching and casting information for our "Out/Spoken" show coming to Birmingham this November.

In partnership with HRC, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Story District is bringing its signature Pride show -- "Out/Spoken" -- to Birmingham on November 12.* "Out/Spoken" is an original show, six years running in Washington, D.C., that features eight hilarious and heartfelt true stories from a range of LGBTQ perspectives.

Dubbed "the gold standard in storytelling" by The Washington Post, Story District is one of the best places to learn storytelling with exceptional teachers, comprehensive classes and customized trainings.

The Birmingham show will feature seasoned storytellers from Story District and new storytellers from the Birmingham area. Therefore, HRC Alabama is looking for some great stories from Alabama's LGBTQ community. Everyone – no matter your experience – is encouraged to pitch a story for the show.

*Show date is tentative; back-up date is November 5.
