Historic Hudson Valley will celebrate Pride Month with an evening of storytelling set for June 29 at Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow.

Here’s how advance materials describe “StoryStage: Pros(e) of Pride:”

“Some of the region’s most masterful raconteurs will share true personal tales of struggle, laughter, loss and triumph on their way to celebrating Pride.

“The evening, which will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the launch of the modern LGBT+ rights movement, features an all-star lineup including Moth champions, ‘RISK!’ Regulars and celebrated authors. Stepping up to the mic will be Kevin Allison, host and founder of the ‘RISK!’ show and podcast; Donna Minkowitz, author of ‘Growing Up Golem’ and winner of a GLAAD Media Award; Calvin S. Cato, named one of the top ‘Queer Comics of Color to Watch’ by Time Out New York; and Colin Wilhm, Moth StorySLAM champ and producer of ‘Catfish’ and the Peabody- and Emmy Award-winning documentary ‘The Jinx.’”

Beer, wine and pies will be available for purchase.

Seating is limited and tickets must be purchased in advance. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the event begins at 8. (The program is recommended for ages 18 and up.)

StoryStage is co-produced by Historic Hudson Valley with Pros(e) of Pie, “a monthly storytelling series combining true stories and tempting pies.”
