For April’s installment of Free Speech, we filed into our west end PDX store to hear tales about finding the silver lining– the break in the clouds, the moral of the story, the good that resulted from the bad, etc. We switched the status quo this month and had 7 amazing storytellers, all of which were either non-binary (gender non-conforming) or male identified! It was a true blue treat to hear different perspectives and give some space for these amazing folks to be heard.
In honor of Women’s History month (and the ‘luckiest’ month), we showed up for another round of everyone’s fave storytelling event. Folks filed into Wildfang West once again to celebrate womxn and their incredible stories. The theme was FEELIN’ LUCKY, and I gotta say– the crowd was definitely feelin’ it!

We always look forward to Free Speech, as it’s the most inspiring and uplifting event we do.
