Transgender, non-binary, and lesbian/gay rights, as well as book banning and censorship issues will be on the table. The storytelling session is open and  is meant to give any AFS attendee an opportunity to relate personal histories around critical issues that have affected and are affecting individual lives, both the lives of AFS members and members of communities we partner with across the United States and the world. ALL are welcome! This is a purely informal, performative exercise. The stories and comments will not be recorded. Chaired by Kay Turner.
