One of the most powerful ways to affect change is telling stories. When we tell stories about the ways same-sex couples and their families in Minnesota are impacted by the 515 laws that discriminate against them, we change the dialog in our state.
That’s why right now we are in the middle of two powerful story-telling projects:
- The 515 Players are taking their show “515 – The Tour!” all across the state. The show features vignettes based on real stories of discrimination against families. So far, we have visited Duluth, Ely, East Grand Forks, Grand Rapids, Bemidji, Brainerd, Mankato, and Austin.
If you haven’t seen the show, be sure to save the date for our “homecoming” on Thursday, June 21, at the Cowles Center in downtown Minneapolis. Tickets will be on sale soon!
- We are continuing the video story-telling project we started at last year’s Twin Cities Pride Festival. You can see the stories we’ve collected so far by clicking on the link below. We are always looking for additional stories! If you are interested in sharing your story, just fill out the online form on our website.
