Our Selves, Our Stories: Being Gay in the Church

Organized by Christ the King Episcopal Church

Come hear stories by gay people and allies as they talk about their experiences as church members. Eight people will read their 800-word essays (which take about 8 minutes to read), followed by group discussion and refreshments.

Speakers include the Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool, Assistant Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, and clergy and lay members of churches in the Mid-Hudson region.

TMI Project: Voices in Action

Voices in Action, TMI Project’s anticipated annual benefit and storytelling showcase, will have Kingston abuzz this year with true confessions from local storytellers who’ve bravely and candidly shared their stories in recent TMI Project workshops and live performances. Benefit attendees will also get an exclusive preview of the TMI Project podcast before the first series is released to the public in 2020.

 

Chris Wells, founding artistic director of the Obie Award-Winning organization The Secret City will be honored with the 2019 Voices in Action Award for his groundbreaking work in and dedication to connecting artists to community and building community around the arts.


TMI Project will also be recognizing three local leaders and activists as TMI Project Agents of Change: Jeff Rindler, Executive Director, Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center; local visionary artist Ubaka Hill; and RUPCO, the region’s leading provider of and advocate for quality, affordable housing, and community development programs. 

All proceeds from Voices in Action will be used to support TMI Project programming in 2019 & 2020 and will help bring our transformative storytelling workshops, live performances and digital campaigns to more people in our community and beyond. These programs make a significant difference in helping amplify the voices of populations whose stories often go unheard.
