True Stories

by Maison Horton


In the flurry of corporate statements and far-reaching social campaigns during Pride Month, individual stories can get lost. The importance of stories from individual members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community can't be understated, as these stories foster unity, understanding, and solidarity among people. In this display, you'll find nonfiction reads from a variety of voices, each with their own experiences brought forward into the limelight.
