Duke City Story Slam is a monthly storytelling event where people tell true stories from their lives, without notes, on that month’s theme. Audience members can put their name in for a 5-min Open Mic slot between that month's Featured Storytellers. A friendly panel of judges score each story and top scores take home a prize. June's theme, in celebration of LGBTQ Pride Month, is "Gender". All Featured Tellers at this month’s slam will identify as trans, gender nonconforming, or LGBQ. Open Mic-ers do not have to identify in-community. DCSS is a production of Storytellers of New Mexico.
