Queer & Trans Youth: Share your Beginning of the Rainbow Stories

Seattle Pride and C89.5 have partnered to empower area youth to share their stories of being part of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, whether you have come out, are in the closet, or if you are questioning. Beginning of the Rainbow: Inspired Stories of Queer & Trans Youth, is an anonymous online platform for youth to share audio recordings of up to two minutes about your lived experiences, your fears, your achievements and celebrations – and notes of encouragement for your peers.

Whether you have a story about coming out, feeling isolated, the support of an ally, or achieving a milestone in your process – whatever is on your mind, we want to hear from you and will treat all stories with confidentiality, respect, and sensitivity. The audio stories will be shared on social media and archived at seattlepride.org/youth to provide LGBTQIA+ youth with a treasure trove of inspiring stories of self-expression.

Simply complete the form below and record your thoughts from any smartphone or computer – and thanks for being who you are!
