To help celebrate Gay Pride weekend, AARP Atlanta and StoryCorps invite you to Listening OutLoud: A Celebration of LGBTQ Voices on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 11 a.m. to noon via Intrado Studios. The StoryCorps OutLoud initiative is dedicated to documenting and preserving stories from the LBGTQ community.
Listening OutLoud will feature voices of hope, resilience, and love from Atlanta and across the country that provide community connection and reflection at a time when we need it more than ever. This virtual event is free, but registration is required. To register, please click here.
Next on Saturday’s to-do list is Bingo, Trivia, and Dance Party featuring Sandra Valls! From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. via Zoom, we’ll have a stand-up performance by none other than comedian Sandra Valls. A multi-hyphenate, Valls is a comic, actor, singer, and writer. She is an outspoken Latina, best known for her powerful, electric, stand-up comedy performances in Showtime’s “The Latin Divas of Comedy.” We hope you join us for an afternoon full of laughter and excitement.
