About the Club:
Happy Pride to one and all! You’re invited to participate in a special recording event with the Life Story Club, where you can share and listen to fabulous life stories from the safety of your home. The Life Story Club is a social club for older adults, a place to meet other individuals with incredible life stories and to share some of your own! Newcomers are welcome to join, whether you plan on telling a story of your own or just listening to the stories of others.
At this special recording event, you will be given the chance to share your life stories related to LGBTQ+ Pride, which will then be shared with the larger public via our platform and/or social media channels for Pride Month!
You are free to share share any story related to Pride or your LGBTQ+ identity, but here are some guiding questions you might consider:
- How did it feel the first time you were surrounded by people you could truly identify with?
- What was your most memorable Pride celebration?
- What is your coming out story?
- How has your identity taken shape over the years?
- What does being part of the LGBTQ+ community mean to you?

The Life Story Club is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting healthy aging and reducing social isolation of older adults. We do this through the club meetings we run, where participants can socialize and make friends through sharing stories. We've worked with various community-based organizations, including public libraries, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, as well as hundreds of individuals to share their life stories.
