HRC is proud to release three emotional and inspiring videos highlighting LGBT Mississippians, Alabamans, and Arkansans sharing their courageous stories. The videos are part of HRC’s Project One America Summer of Conversations story-telling campaign announced earlier this month.

The videos, produced by media consulting firm Putnam Partners, capture testimonies of LGBT people in Mississippi, Alabama, and Arkansas, sharing stories of discrimination as well as hope and aspiration living and working in the South. Participants represent various backgrounds and detail real-life issues related to growing up, raising families, and working in the South, while identifying as LGBT. 

Check out the videos below:
