The Unstraight Museum works to document stories from the LGBTQI community all over the world and we would like to invite you to participate by sharing a story from your life.
The most spectacular stories often not the most interesting but the private, ordinary stories about, life, family, love and friends can be the ones that effect us the most and goes to our hearts.
Every person has the right to be heard and by sharing a story from your life you contribute to creating an archive with stories that never have been told before. The stories can give courage to others and create understanding that all persons are equal and share the same feelings and dreams.
You can bring pictures or objects or just tell your story that could be recorded on video or sound, if you want.
After the talk, if you don’t want to share, we can delete the story. You decide how or if you want to use your name or identity.
It is such honor for me to listen to your story and hopefully, you foresee how important it will be for all of us to share our voices and stories as we are only recognized when we are visible.
I hope these stories will be historically placed in museums and sites where the legacy of the LGBTQI life will be shared, assessed and learnt.
All the best, Nhung
