‘Out & OutLoud’ StoryCorps returns to Stonewall Week

StoryCorps returns to Atlanta during Stonewall Week

Last year, nearly 100 people crammed into Radial Café, many sitting on the floor, for WABE’s “Out & Out Loud” event featuring lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people sharing their stories as part of the NPR affiliate’s StoryCorps program.

“The StoryCorps event was a smashing success — the idea of people gathering in a room to just listen to stories of other community members — that’s not really something you can do at [Atlanta Pride in October] and be effective,” said James Sheffield, executive director of Atlanta Pride.

This year’s free event is set for Wednesday, June 22. Food will be available from Radial Café and people will have the chance to sit in a more spacious setting at the recently expanded Phillip Rush Center.
