Rainbopedia Introduces Storytellers Workshops

LGBTQ Nonprofit Invites People Around the World to Submit Oral History Videos

Los Angeles, CA (August 2021) – Rainbopedia, the game-changing online global LGBTQ archive, is promoting Storytellers, their oral history program that invites people everywhere to submit short videos about the worldwide LGBTQ experience.

The Storytellers program is an opportunity for people to be creative and contribute to a larger cause by sharing stories about themselves, others, or a historical person, place, or event. Submitted Storytellers videos will be curated and presented on the Rainbopedia website, YouTube channel, and Instagram.

Rainbopedia is offering two different ways to learn more about Storytellers: an explainer video and an online or in-person workshop. The explainer video stars comedians Liz Glazer and Jared Goldstein, and describes the steps needed to create and upload a Storytellers video. The interactive workshop is an easy, step-by-step course designed to be led by a facilitator.

Rainbopedia is partnering with CenterLink, the umbrella organization for global LGBTQ Centers, so these resources can be shared. Both the explainer video and the workshop will be available in September. Information will also be available at rainbopedia.org.

Rainbopedia is also producing a video ad campaign to promote Storytellers featuring celebrated LGBTQ performance artists like John Fleck, Ian MacKinnon, Odious Ari, and others. These 90-second spots will be made available to Centers to help them promote the program.
