Collection: LGBTQ+ Stories

The LGBTQ+ civil rights movement started in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn, where riots were held in protest of a police raid. This uprising paved the way for an ongoing fight for equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community, whose members have experienced prejudice, discrimination, harrassment, and violence based on who they are. This audio story collection highlights the positive work of the LGBTQ+ community, advocates, and allies who have stood up and taken action to fight for equality and liberation. These stories address policy issues such as legalizing same-sex marriage and protecting the rights of LGBTQ workers, as well as voicing perspectives on topics such as growing up gay or using gender-neutral pronouns. This audio collection can help listeners feel connected to the LGBTQ+ community and empowered to speak up as members or allies.
