True Stories En Vivo invites storytellers to submit a true personal story that centers on the following themes:
- A time when you realized you’re “living in the hyphen” (between two worlds).
- A time when you were overcome with a feeling of acceptance or belonging.
- A time when you stepped into an identity you didn’t always embrace.
Four top storytellers will also be chosen to perform their true stories before a live audience via Zoom at “True Stories En Vivo” on June 10, 2021, at 5:00 pm PT, co-hosted by both Tamarindo (Ana Sheila Victorino and Brenda Gonzalez) and The Nasiona (Julián Esteban Torres López). Register here if you want to attend the free virtual event.
True Stories En Vivo will feature special guest storyteller Melissa Lozada-Oliva, Guatelombian (Guatemalan-Colombian) American poet and screenwriter.
They especially encourage stories from folks that relate to one or more of these identities: Latina/e/o/x, BIPOC, being mixed-race, LGBTQIAA+, from an immigrant family or diaspora community, folks with chronic conditions, and/or disabled folks. Tell us how you connect to any of these experiences, if at all.
