Playwright Maura Campbell wove the stories of 18 LGBTQ+ Vermonters, old and young, into the book Standing in This Place: Growing Up LGBTQ in Vermont. Campbell joins gay-rights activist Howdy Russell from an older generation and trans actor/school educator Ray Merrill from a younger generation, who shared their personal stories in the book, as they discuss their challenges growing up LGBTQ+ in Vermont and respond to audience questions.
