Born This Way: stories of fate, doubt and acceptance

This month Arctic Entries brings you “Born This Way: stories of fate, doubt and acceptance.” In the spirit of This American Life, The Moth, and other storytelling events, Arctic Entries brings Alaskans to the stage to share their personal stories: funny, sad and sweet. At every performance, people tell a seven-minute long true story about themselves relating to the show’s theme. Local musicians perform a few songs as well. Proceeds made from Arctic Entries’s ticket sales go to a non-profit partner selected at the beginning of each season.


BROADCAST: Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
