—Elizabeth Gerard, aka "The Mighty B," is an award-winning writer, teacher and performer based in Chicago. She holds an MFA in Fiction from Columbia College Chicago, and graduate degrees in Creative Non-Fiction, Stage and Screenwriting, and Poetry from Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. She has told stories and read poetry with various live-lit organizations throughout Chicago.

—Melody Kamali is a queer, first-generation Iranian-American stand-up comic and storyteller. The dualities of her life make for an awareness and appreciation of the absurd, and an almost confessional style of comedy. She is a current member of the female stand-up collective Hoo HA Comedy and co-producer of its monthly show. She also produces and co-hosts the bi-monthly stand-up show.

—Owen Keehnen, writer and historian, is the author of several books. He was the co-founder of The Legacy Project and currently serves on the boards of The Legacy Project and The Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame.

—Damian Moshak is a dedicated lifelong educator and trainer. A clever wordsmith, story telling seems to be in his DNA. He is quick with a joke and relevant story. Damian has lived in Chicago most of his life and makes his home with his Husband and two cats. Damian always has a story, inside joke and fun phrase to share.

—Jerry Nunn is a contributor and photographer for the LGBT weekly newspaper Windy City Times, the website GoPride.com, and Edge Media. He is syndicated nationally and completed thousands of celebrity interviews, many of these for his Nunn on One YouTube Channel. His own website, NunnOnTheRun.com, has him covering events all over town. Follow the Nunn @jerrynunn on Twitter and Instagram and he will pray for you. Can I get an amen?

—R.C. Riley is a queer warrior woman, writer, performer and storyteller who began writing as a means of healing after a sexual assault. She has told stories at Tenx9, Loose Chicks, Sappho's Salon, Plagiarists Salon, and more. R.C. honed her writing skills at Chicago Dramatists Theater, and will be debuting her solo show, Wrong Way Journey in May as part of Three Cat Productions' SOLO Chicago Festival.
