Story District Stories in the heart of Steel City

Post submitted by HRC Alabama State Manager, Eva Kendrick and HRC Alabama Field Organizer, Tori Wolfe-Sisson

In partnership with Human Rights Campaign and with funding from The National Endowment for the Arts, Story District is coming Birmingham to produce its signature Pride show -- Out/Spoken: Queer, Questioning, Bold & Proud in Birmingham (Nov 12). We are thrilled to be able to share the Alabama stories of life in and around LGBTQ community.

This 90-minute show will feature a variety of people telling eight-minute true stories related to the joys and challenges of queer life in Alabama. Three to four slots will be open to local folks who are interested in being a part of the show. No experience necessary. Each storyteller will work extensively with a coach to craft the most compelling and entertaining performance-ready story.

Beyond the event in November, the HRC Alabama team can attest to the importance and the power of delivering stories well. We have conversations with folks of all walks of life, some who are progressive and pro-equality and others who are not. When it gets down to it, telling your story well is the easiest way to share your shoes for a mile of your life's journey. From the state house to the kitchen table, the grocer to the dermatologist- the questions people have are based on conversations they have never had and our stories are the ways hearts and minds are changed.

If this sounds fun or you know you have a compelling story to share, please fill out this form.

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
