Like the t-shirt says: Y’all Means All. Since our first live event, All Y’all has prioritized the inclusion of LGBTQ voices. This past June, Sara from All Y’all took part in StoryCorps’ Stonewall OutLoud project, helping gather stories from LGBTQ elders in Shreveport including Randy Moulder, Deborah Allen and David Radford.
For this special episode of All Y’all, we’ve assembled a few of our favorite moments from their stories, in hopes that these excerpts will encourage you to listen to their full stories.
Here’s links to their full StoryCorps stories:

All Y’all Live: Going Through It on Saturday, Sept. 28
The next All Y’all live storytelling event, Going Through It, will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28 at LSU Shreveport’s beautiful University Center. For our sixth annual Fidnto Award fundraiser event, we’re currently seeking six true stories of overcoming seemingly insurmountable challenges, beating the odds, and going the distance. There’ll be a cash bar and live musical interludes. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit mental health support services for underserved communities in and around Shreveport.
