TRUTH: A Trans Youth Storytelling Project

Jan 25, 2018

Our friends at the Transgender Law Center and GSA Network have launched TRUTH, a wonderful youth-led program for trans and gender nonconforming young people to build public understanding, empathy, and a movement for liberation through storytelling and media organizing. Beginning in 2015, the project launched with five videos from transgender young people and families. The platform has allowed transgender youth to connect with others, express themselves online, and for some, come out for the first time.

Now all trans youth can visit the TRUTH website to learn the fundamentals of storytelling, craft your story, and if you choose to, you can share your story with the TRUTH community of trans youth. The website provides tools, tips and resources for thinking through your goals as a storyteller, how to stay safe when sharing your story publicly, and how to share your story authentically and effectively for your goals.

Here’s one story from the TRUTH video series. See all of the TRUTH stories on their website.
