Celebrating Queer Excellence Through Storytelling!
Enby Spoken Histories is an archival storytelling project that aims to record, preserve, and amplify the rich, diverse stories of individuals whose genders don’t fall within the binary. We have partnered with StoryCorps to build a longstanding, historical archive at the Library of Congress. We hope our stories educate and normalize both our humanity and our existence. By creating space through storytelling, we aim to continue building safer spaces for TGNC folks to thrive!
There is a distinct and severe lack of information, research, and representation in literature—academic or otherwise—detailing transgender lives and identities. Even moreso, there is an absence of nonbinary recognition in recorded material. Seeing this need for documentation of non-binary livelihoods, we have partnered with StoryCorps to build a longstanding, historical archive at the Library of Congress. This is groundbreaking!!! Our content is being recognized by an official archival space that doesn’t normally pay notice to queer, let alone non-binary, experiences.
We would like to invite people of all identities to join us in honoring some of the stories that have been shared so far. Enby Spoken Histories is a developing project that started as a passion project and is now taking shape as a larger oral history collection. Come honor the stories we have cultivated, along with the live talks from our community members.
This is especially important right now as we fight the attempted erasure of our community.
Join us while we share some of the stories we have recorded with StoryCorps.
Special Guests: Lexie Bean, Nicole Sgarlato, Bobby Sanchez, and more!
