Drae curates, hosts and produces TELL which is a monthly queer storytelling event. Each month TELL seeks to create space for queers to tell a story on a specific theme. The first TELL featured stories on the theme of MAGIC!

TELL boasts a formidable list of who’s who of amazing people from the NYC LGBTQ Community.

from the HUFFINGTON POST:

” hosted by Drae Campbell, the event is an opportunity for queer people to take back the autonomy and agency over their own narratives by telling their own stories and sharing in the stories of others in the community. An ongoing event, each installment of the TELL series is slated to feature an individual theme and a different group of storytellers. ”
