Nathan Manske, creator of ImFromDriftwood.com, traveled to all 50 states over the course of 4 months collecting LGBT stories from the smallest towns and biggest cities across America. Come hear what he learned about the LGBT community, as well as the straight community’s thoughts towards LGBTers, as he shares his stories from the road. You’ll hear about an unlikely ally in small-town Oklahoma, an eerie Grindr encounter at a house in West Virginia, his journey to Sarah Palin’s house in Wasilla and a whole lot more. He collected over 170 Video Stories on the Tour, several which he’ll be sharing in the presentation. The stories are sometimes funny, sometimes emotional but always genuine, giving you a rare glimpse inside the lives of LGBT America today.
