VAMP: Home for the Holidays!

The VAMP Showcase’s beloved Holiday revue features a myriad of stories that come from of our time-honored tradition of squeezing the family together in a confined space, plying on the food and the booze, and waiting for something weird to happen.

Support SSWA’s Winter Pledge Drive!

Twice a year, So Say We All reaches out to our friends to ask that you consider a donation in support of our important work. This year, we are proud to report that thanks to you and many partners, we have been able to raise our storytelling programs to a whole new level. Please consider a gift this holiday season to keep this momentum rolling.

In 2014, So Say We All partnered with San Diego Central and Oceanside Libraries to launch the Veteran Writers Program and present “Homecoming,” a year-long series of workshops, live performance, and publication of true stories from veterans throughout San Diego and the nation on the subject of their return from war. This is the first sequence of activities from the Veteran Writers Program, an initiative that with your help So Say We All will sustain long into the future. You’ll help serve those who’ve served us all.

Setting the stage for voices from all over our community is nothing new to So Say We All. As executive director Justin Hudnall puts it, “I would much rather hear from people, than about people.” So Say We All celebrates the evolving narratives of members of our LGBTQ community through regular, participant-driven showcases, and our energetic partnerships with San Diego City College, Southwestern College and Grossmont College affirm the power and diversity of student experiences from all walks of life.

Please think back to a moment this year during a So Say We All performance when you heard something you would never otherwise hear, from a member of our community you may otherwise never meet. It’s a community we’re building in San Diego, the kind of home we can be proud to share with our returning veterans, the kind of home where we can each be truly who we are, publicly and celebrated. We ask that you join us by making your gift today.

P.S. So Say We All’s Winter Pledge Drive ends the night of December 18th. Help us meet our goal and donate now!
