Oral History InterviewerAndrea Bonsignori07/01/21

I'm a 26 year old trans woman who just moved to the Asheville area and I'm looking for ways to get involved. I have a graduate degree in industrial psychology and I'm familiar with conducting interviews, so I was interested in becoming an interviewer for the oral history project. I'm passionate about LGBTQ history; it's often erased or kept hidden, but these stories deserve to be told. I can be reached on my email or cell phone, preferably in the afternoon. Thank you for your consideration.

I love shooting events and I think this one would be wonderful to shoot to showcase Asheville’s love and support of the LGBTQIA+ community. In addition to being a teacher, I have 3 years of professional experience working as a photographer stringer shooting sports and events for the Lenoir News-Topic. I also just started my own photography business 531 Photography LLC. You can see examples of my work on my website 531photography.com which is also linked to my Instagram.
Best way to get ahold of me is by email anytime throughout the summer and after 3pm beginning in mid August.

Director, Festival VolunteersJennifer Lutz06/09/21

Having moved from Atlanta to Asheville right before COVID-19 I haven't had the opportunity to dive into the LGBTQ+ community in Asheville yet, but am very interested in supporting the Blue Ridge Pride festival to make connections and grow community.

I have extensive experience in festival management, volunteer coordination, and event logistics. My former role was with Out Georgia, the LGBT Chamber of Commerce as the General Manager where we hosted 46 events a year, including a large conference and Atlanta Pride events.

I've also been part of the production team for Atlanta Pride, Dogwood Festival, EarthX, and Little Five Halloween Festival. As well as the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce Annual Conference, Disability:IN National Conference and Operation: Hope National Conference.

My current role at MANNA FoodBank as the Director of Agency Relations puts me at the center of food banking volunteerism in Western North Carolina.

I would be honored to lend my festival and organizational expertise to Blue Ridge Pride as the Director of Festival Volunteers. Making everyone feel special, united, and included in this awesome event would be my focus. Thank you for your consideration! Happy to share my full resume and references.

Siljoy Maurer

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
