AWI Our Stories Our Voices presents: Intergenerational Wisdom and Queer History Across Cultures

The Our Stories, Our Voices festival celebrates queer mental health stories told by LGBTQ+ filmmakers and artists. Over three days, filmmakers, mental health professionals, and community leaders will lead insightful, interactive workshops focused on the unique experiences of queer people and their mental health. If you are interested in learning about these sessions, and participating in these critical conversations, you can see them all on the Our Stories, Our Voices information page!

When we speak intergenerationally, we have to find a shared language to have meaningful dialogue. We need a meaningful dialogue to understand the damage done by those in power, and the legacy left to us by those who fought against them. We welcome you to join this conversation with filmmakers Campbell X, Bennett Singer, and Hao Zhou, and Chaplain of the National STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans Association, Reverend Magora E. Kennedy, as they promote love and understanding between generations of queer and racialized folks to explore how far we’ve come and how far we will go.
