Objects of Pride: A Virtual Show & Tell
Celebrate and connect during Pride Month this June through a unique virtual show and tell on June 23, 2021. Open to all members of the community that identify as LGBTQ2S+, this online event is an opportunity to share a personal story about an object, photo, song, or other artefact that connects you to your LGBTQ2S+ experience and history. After a quick introduction, participants will join small, facilitated break out rooms, allowing for more opportunities to connect and learn from each other through histories and experiences. Participants are encouraged to share their objects and stories on Instagram using the hashtag #ObjectsofPrideMOV.
Personal objects have the power to express stories of courage, joy, self-hood and community; we hope to create a unique and dynamic collection of objects from Vancouver’s LGBTQ2S+ communities that paint a portrait of queer vitality across the spectrum.
Real-time, automated captioning and ASL interpretation will be available during the program. For additional support requests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
