Unmuted Stories: Readings by Elder LGBT Authors & Allies
November 18, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm PSTFree
Join us on Wednesday November 18 at 6:30pm for selected readings from the engaging new anthology, Unmuted: Stories of Courage and Resilience from the GenPRIDE Community.
Authors included in this anthology will read story excerpts, as well discuss the healing and sense of community that came from writing and sharing important life stories in what began as a simple writing workshop held by GenPRIDE. During this event, you’ll have a unique opportunity to ask live questions of the authors about their stories and writing processes.
In this gripping anthology, fourteen LGBTQIA midlife and older adults share the struggles and triumphs that shaped their lives. Some stories delve into issues that marked their generation: AIDS, gender identity, sexuality, persecution, and claiming one’s self. Others grapple with health, family, loss, addiction, and love. Unmuted is about heartbreak and courage, strength, and resilience. It is a riveting testimony to the power of personal storytelling.
This reading and Q & A is presented by the Seattle Public Library and GenPRIDE Seattle, Western Washington’s resource for LGBTQIA+ aging.
