Pride Call For Stories

The Vancouver Pride Society and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra are hosting a “Call for Stories” from BC LGBTQAI2S+ youth 18 years old and younger.

Do you have a story to tell? Maybe it’s your coming out story, a story about your community, your experiences, your transition, your pride, your struggle—we’d like to hear it.

One particularly compelling story will be selected to be presented during the VSO/VPS “Symphonic Pride” concert streamed digitally in July, 2021. Honorable mentions may be considered/included in the performance
