DESCRIPTION

In partnership with Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community CenterTMI Project is proud to announce a national call for storytellers who self-identify as members of the Black Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) community. We are offering our first-ever Black Trans Stories Matter true storytelling workshop in April and May of 2021 which will culminate in a live virtual performance on Saturday, June 12th, 2021. The workshop series will be a Black trans-led space for Black TGNC people to gather, write, share stories, and receive support without justifying, explaining, or defending their truth. The culminating content will be accessible to an all-inclusive audience, paired with strategic tools to inspire deep introspection, a willingness to transform oneself and take bold action to end systemic racism and transphobia.

Submissions due by March 1st. Chosen applicants will be contacted by March 15th and will receive a $500 stipend for their time and participation. Participants must be available Mondays, 7-9PM EST from April 19 to June 14 (with the exception of Memorial Day) and for the performance on the evening of Saturday, June 12.
