Your story is important! Your story is historic! Every single LGBTQ+ person with connections to East TN make up our history and culture. You don’t have to be a big time activist, or the leader of an organization to share your story. Everyone’s story deserves to be heard, deserves to be preserved. We especially want to the stories of BIPOC folks, Transgender folks, our LGBTQ+ elders, and all other identities which are further marginalized within the LGBTQ+ community.
