Event description

Description

Free to the public, RSVP by Oct 20!

Crisis Center North presents “Stories Coming Together”” an evening exploring stories of the LGBTQA+ community through both words and art on Wed., Nov. 15, 2017, 6-9pm, at the New Hazlett Theater (6 Allegheny Square E., Pittsburgh, PA 15212).

Dr. Rachel Levine, Acting Pennsylvania Secretary of Health, Physician General, and Professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at Penn State College of Medicine, will be the keynote speaker and will address violence affecting the LGBTQA+ community.

In addition, the art exhibit “Where Love Is Illegal” by award winning photographer Robin Hammond will be on display. Hammond is the recipient of the W. Eugene Smith Fund for Humanistic Photography, a World Press Photo prize, the Pictures of the Year International World Understanding Award and four Amnesty International awards for Human Rights journalism.

The exhibit explores the stories of members of LGBTQA+ community around the world who have faced oppression for their sexual or gender identity. Those who are photographed, through the global storytelling campaign, choose how they want to pose, what to wear and how to present themselves. They hand write their stories and letters to be shared with the world. The project also invites the LGBTQA+ community to share their own stories through a global social media campaign and through local anti-stigma campaigns, developed in conjunction with Hammond’s team.

This event is sponsored by Highmark Health and Allegheny Health Network, the FISA Foundation, the Staunton Farm Foundation, the Jewish Women’s Foundation of Greater Pittsburgh, the Board of Crisis Center North, and ThermoFisher Scientific.
