Egale, Canada’s national charity promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans (LGBT) human rights, wants to hear your story.
Egale is encouraging participants of LGBTQ community to post their stories about issues that impact their lives to their favourite social networks with the tag #HearOurStory. Allies are also encouraged to participate with their own stories of how they foster safer communities.
“As individuals and as a community, our stories are important,” says Egale Executive Director Helen Kennedy. “Sharing helps foster a sense of community and pushes key issues into the spotlight.”
Each story posted has the potential to be featured in Egale’s documentary series, #HearOurStory, which will help the organization in its work. The contest closes November 3.
