What’s your Pride story?

To celebrate PRIDE, Georgetown Public Library is asking our patrons to share their story this summer.

We want to hear from you! Share your coming out stories, a story about a first love or whatever you would like!

Here are some prompts to get you started.

  • Tell us about a time where you felt different and potentially alone, for being who you are. How did you find resources and other people who could support you?
  • Tell us about one person who helped change your life.
  • What advice do you have for a young person who may feel isolated and scared for being LGBTQ+?
  • What “change in attitudes” do you believe have taken place in your lifetime regarding LGBTQ people?
  • What difficult silences have you broken to reach justice or equality for yourself or others?
  • How have you challenged gender or sexuality cultural norms in your life?
  • How did you first begin to realize your sexual or gender identity?
  • Tell me about the first time you came out. Whom did you tell and why?
  • Do you have memories of your youth when you were treated kindly due to your sexual or gender identity? Cruelly?
  • How has your life been different than you imagined?
  • Who was your first love? Your first relationship?
  • Have things changed for the LBGTQ+ community over the past 50 years?
  • How do you hope life will be different for the LBGTQ+ community 50 years from now?
  • What advice would you give to your teenage self?
  • What are you most proud of?
  • How do you want to be remembered?

We would love to share everyone’s story but in order to represent a wide variety of voices we may not to be able to post every submission we receive.

Email us at library.marketing@georgetown.org. Stories can be anonymous. We want to hear from everyone-there is no age limit on submissions accepted.
