  1. Hi,

    I’m writing from StoryCorps, America’s largest nonprofit national oral history project. I thought you and your readers would be interested in listening to StoryCorps’ latest story to broadcast on NPR this morning. Tony Perri tells his grandson, Jeffrey, about coming out as a gay man. You can take a listen here: http://www.storycorps.org/listen/stories/tony-perri-and-his-grandson-jeffrey-perri.

    StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit project whose mission is to honor and celebrate one another’s lives through listening. Since 2003, tens of thousands of people from across the country have interviewed family and friends through StoryCorps. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to take home and share and is also archived for generations to come at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Millions listen to the award-winning broadcasts on public radio and the Internet. Select stories have also been published in the New York Times bestselling book, Listening Is an Act of Love.

    I hope you take the time to listen and share.
