Eight storytellers will take the stage at Emory University Thursday night to tell true stories about their LGBTQ experiences.
The event, “Out/Spoken: Queer, Questioning, Bold, and Proud,” is the result of a partnership between the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy group, and the DC-based nonprofit Story District.
Four of the storytellers are from Atlanta, one of whom is Ames Simmons. Simmons is a health care attorney and a volunteer with the Human Rights Campaign. He will be talking about his experiences as a queer transgender man.
