PRIDE STORYTELLER EVENT

July 20, 2023 Stoner Theater

Join us for an extraordinary evening of storytelling that will touch your heart and ignite your imagination. On Thursday, July 20, Capital City Pride proudly presents True Stories, True Selves, an unforgettable event that celebrates intimacy, authenticity, and the power of human connection. Supported in partnership with Businessolver, IMT Insurance, and Athene USA, this gathering aims to bridge the Des Moines Metro community with the LGBTQ+ community through the magic of personal narratives.

In a world where stories shape our deepest passions and beliefs, this event invites you to unlock the profound and meaningful tales that lie within each of us. Through the art of storytelling, we discover the shared experiences that bind us together, creating a tapestry of empathy, understanding, and unity. By embracing vulnerability and shedding light on our own journeys, we cultivate a space for genuine connections to flourish.

Everyday heroes from our local community will step into the spotlight, bravely sharing their remarkable stories of triumph over adversity. From the touching to the hilarious, these narratives reveal the extraordinary experiences of individuals who have built families, crafted lives, and left an indelible mark on our city and its vibrant community. With brevity and heartfelt emotion, these tales serve as a testament to the power of authenticity and compassion.

Come, join us on this extraordinary journey of storytelling and discovery. Let your own story intertwine with those of others as we celebrate diversity, empathy, and the undeniable human spirit. By sharing our stories, we illuminate the path to a brighter, more inclusive future. Visibility becomes education, compassion becomes connection, and every voice becomes a catalyst for change.
