Our Voices Matter & My Pronouns Matter

LGBTQ identified youth use the Internet as a knowledge source about coming out. While coming out is extremely difficult and a lifelong process, having access to people that have gone through that while living in a rural area within the southeast and midwest is difficult. Our Voices Matter will host stories from people in those communities in hopes that youth will not commit suicide or inflict self-harm. Our Voices Matter is an online interactive storytelling campaign that focuses on all experiences within the queer identity spectrum using the images that we have collected so far. Our Voices Matter will allow users to upload their story in whatever medium they are most comfortable with.
