Monday, January 11, 6:00-7:45 p.m.

Preregistration is not required. The Zoom link is Under the Rainbow Storytelling. To join by phone, see instructions here. PLEASE NOTE: This is a new Zoom link and will be used going forward.

GREG COLUCCI is a 60 year old author, storyteller, and an elder in his community. He is also living with HIV/AIDS and Huntington’s Disease, a genetic neurological illness. At Under the Rainbow, Fresh Ground Stories, and other Seattle storytelling venues, he uses storytelling to challenge negative impressions of aging in the Gay community, tapping into emotional, physical and esoteric ideas through the lens of an elder.

Greg has recently had two stories published in the anthologies, Unmuted: Stories of Courage & Resilience from the GenPRIDE Community and ALONE TOGETHER: Love, Grief, and Comfort in the Time of CoVid.

The raw bravery of the writers both in their life experiences and their vulnerability…These stories of personal loss, change, growth and…acceptance are vividly told and moving. They become part of Seattle’s rich tradition of queer literature.” –Former Seattle City Councilmember Sally Clark–

6:00-6:30 p.m. — socializing
6:30-7:45 p.m. — featured and open-mic storytelling; each story followed by group conversation

Under the Rainbow: Storytelling for the LGBTQIA+ and Allied Community takes place every second Monday for teens and adults. Sign up for open mic at the event. LGBTQIA+ tellers are prioritized; allies are welcome in the audience and to participate in post-story conversation. No one is obligated to tell a story.

Under the Rainbow is supported by Edmonds Library, Edmonds Arts Commission, Seattle Storytellers Guild, Edmonds Neighborhood Action Coalition, and Pride Foundation.
