This training is for current volunteers and newcomers to Speaking Out! Join us for a conversation about sexuality and gender, practice your story to share in future panels, and get to know everyone else in the program. This training is AS CLOSE TO MANDATORY AS POSSIBLE for continuing with the Speaking Out program.
We will hold other trainings this year, If you can't make this training, please schedule a time to talk with Desi about other options at email@example.com.
It was 1985 and I was walking down Castro Street toward Market on a gorgeous June San Francisco day. I had graduated from High School in Houston, Texas just a week earlier and now I was surrounded by the exact opposite of where I had grown up – a liberal fantasyland which felt truly unreal – yet it wasn’t the rainbow flag festooned boulevard then that it is today; instead, black bunting and sorrow ruled the neighborhood.
