Your Story

The Your Story page features a number of ways you can share your memories and experiences as a member of the LGBTQ+ community in the Middle Tennessee region.

Oral History

We need people to volunteer to tell their stories of coming out, finding love, participating in activism, surviving the AIDS epidemic, and dancing with their community. Fill out the Google Form linked below to sign up for an oral history interview.

Digital Diary

Is writing more your style? Share your memories with us in what we call a “Digital Diary,” in which you can respond to questions with a few sentences or paragraphs in the Google Form linked below.
