OUR_STORY – queer history in the making

Storytelling is one of the oldest and most accessible tools used to share culture and experiences over generations.

But telling our own stories, and sharing our own experiences in our own words, is also a means of empowerment and self-affirmation – especially when our voices have been marginalized for as long as we can remember. OUR_STORY aims to gather queer narratives from all around the world, seeing that freedom of expression for people that don’t conform to the majority’s gender norms is still relatively or completely absent in some parts of our planet and underrepresented everywhere.

Opportunities with Transnational Queer Underground

Volunteers: For 2019 we are looking to build a team of engaged volunteers to make illustrations, write, report and explore content for the website as well as to get involved with the organisation of TQU’s events in Berlin.

Partner: We don’t like capitalism, but we like you. We’re happy to support queer run shops, publishers, labels, queer artists, musicians, activists, etc. and we’d like to get to know you.

TOGETHER FOR QUEER DREAMS

Transnational Queer Underground brings together and supports diverse queer voices. Art, music, film, writing or activism – we believe that we’re all in this together and we can only grow strong if we support each other.

If you find joy and value here – let us know.

Donating = Loving

Make a donation so that we can continue to find and publish the most interesting queer perspectives for you.
