Voices Unheard - Stories from the Shadows
Remarkable power comes from the sharing of stories. One of the most compelling steps toward healing, reconciliation, and even long-term systemic change is through the telling of our personal narratives. Voices Unheard aims to empower unhoused LGBTQIA youth to share their experiences of living on the streets. By making the unspeakable - speakable - through giving voice to their stories, a self that was wounded, broken, frightened or lost may now be reclaimed. In addition, as others experience the authenticity and humanness of these young people’s lives, their stories will serve to engage and alter others’ attitudes, as well as heighten understanding and acceptance of LGBTQIA people within our communities.
