What is OUR_STORY?

OUR_STORY – Storytelling is one of the oldest and most accessible tools used to share culture and experiences over generations.

But telling our own stories, and sharing our own experiences in our own words, is also a means of empowerment and self-affirmation – especially when our voices have been marginalized for as long as we can remember.

OUR_STORY aims to gather queer narratives from all around the world, seeing that freedom of expression for people that don’t conform to the majority’s gender norms is still relatively or completely absent in some parts of our planet and underrepresented everywhere.

We work with a team of experienced volunteer editors so that each story can be read and enjoyed by as many people as possible. Right now we can only accept submissions in English, but if you write in another language, you can get in touch as well and we will see what we can do.
OUR_STORY wants to highlight voices that are and have often been silenced. You’re especially encouraged to submit if you have not published anything before.

Reprints are ok, so are anonymous submissions.

We are looking for creative writing submissions as well as journalistic or biographical work.

OUR_STORY is queer history in the making. Be a part of it!

OUR_STORY is open for submissions until June 2018. Formats can be short stories, poems, book excerpts, interviews, diary entries, documentaries, comics and what else you can think of. Submissions can be in writing, photography, video or audio. Accepted submissions will be published online on TQU and accessible to all.

Call for submissions ends June 30th, 2018.
Deadline extended until July 8th, 2018.

A selection of the best stories from Shifting Traditions and OUR_STORY will soon be republished in physical form.

How can you benefit from coaching? Life is precious, and it's a limited period of time we have on this earth, in this form. We can use this time to grow, experience, love, serve and learn.

Each of us gets to choose in every moment how their life is going to continue, but often we don't make the choices we want, but the ones we think are expected from us. And that leads to chaos, unhappiness and confusion because we're not aligned with our inner knowing.

Once we realize that we have the power to choose and change our circumstances, life enters into a more natural flow.

But to get there, we have some unlearning to do. We need to uncover the subconscious believes that keep us stuck, we need to leave our comfort zones and stretch ourselves, and we have to form new habits that serve us better. And that's what I'm here for, I will help you to become joyfully interdependent.

If you would like to work with me as a coach, I can guide you to find new options that are more aligned with your inner knowing, and to learn to trust your inner voice, to clear blockages that have been holding you back and to open up space for what really matters in your life. The best way to work with me this year is by joining the I AM CREATOR School as a VIP member with individual coaching.

On this journey you can find clarity, confidence, love, freedom, connection and so much more.

Ask yourself:

Am I ready to explore what else is possible for me? Am I curious to learn more about myself and my powers?
