We continue our quest to feature FPA's staff's favorite stories with Becca Jennings, our beloved Public Liaison Consultant! Becca chose a story that was told at our “Busted” 2010 Fall Grand Slam. Aaron told a story about being targeted as a gay man and chased by a group of men in trucks when he was living in Alabama. Despite the sad and scary nature of the story, Aaron brings laughter and warmth to his tale, making it a definite standout in our StorySlam history. Watch the whole story in the video below.
Becca chose the story because, “In his story, Aaron draws from his own personal experience
s to talk about a larger issue — something bigger than himself. Aaron's story is an example of how first person stories can be used as tools to increase cultural understanding and propagate social awareness.”
