If you want to experience the life-changing power of personal storytelling at work, Unmuted is a must-read. Over the past year, I’ve had the gift of teaming with GenPRIDE Executive Director, Steven Knipp, and the amazing GenPRIDE community to offer an ongoing writing workshop that has resulted in this incredible anthology. I’m honored to have played a role in bringing these riveting stories to the world. Most of all, I’m grateful for the gift of calling all of these inspiring, resilient authors my friends. You can listen to audio excerpts from Unmuted: Stories of Courage and Resilience from the GenPRIDE Community here.
In this riveting testimony to the power of personal storytelling, fourteen LGBTQIA+ midlife and older adults share the struggles and triumphs that shaped their lives.
Some stories delve into issues that marked their generation: AIDS, gender identity, sexuality, persecution, and claiming one’s self. Other stories grapple with health, family, loss, addiction, and love. Unmuted is about heartbreak, courage, strength, and resilience. Each story has a featured written and audio excerpt available anytime at genprideseattle.org/unmuted
Beginning today, you can pre-order the Unmuted anthology as a softcover paperback or eBook, directly from GenPRIDE. Audiobook and eBook versions will also be available through Amazon. Books will begin shipping on Oct 21 and make great holiday gifts.
GenPRIDE will host a week of free full-length audio previews for Unmuted starting Wednesday, October 14, and stretching every day until the book releases on October 21! Each day will feature two different complete stories read by the author in their entirety.
Listen to the full week of Unmuted Daily Stories and you’ll agree that our personal experiences contribute to a moving and powerful LGBTQIA+ history.
