Personal Historian, Martie McNabb of Show & Tales, will host an evening of sharing coming-out stories, each told through one object.
Join personal historian Martie McNabb for “Show&Tale: Coming-Out Mementos and Stories,” a unique, interactive event build around sharing your story in relation to an object you present and show to the audience.
For a majority of the members of the LGBTQ community, coming out constituted one of life’s most significant events. What did it mean to you? The act of coming out to yourself or to others? Awakening to a role as an activist?
In Martie’s experience, you probably still cherish a coming-out memento — a particular object, document, or photo that plays a nostalgic role in your story.
This interactive evening features guided sharing of coming-out stories of all kinds. You’ll learn more about yourself while connecting with other professionals as we share the stories that helped make us who we are today.
To help manage time and have room for many different stories, tickets are divided into Viewer and Participant categories:
No need to practice. Everyone is welcome to share. Four-minute time limit. No judges, no prizes, no competition. Just an enriching evening of appreciating the personal stories of those in the LGBTQ community.
