In WJCT’s StoryCorps OutLoud series, we’re hearing from Jacksonville residents who are part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Each week, WJCT’s Lindsey Kilbride shares a conversation recorded by the StoryCorps oral history project. All the participants are linked by the local LGBT youth support group, JASMYN.
Cindy Watson is the Executive Director of JASMYN and she's been there from the beginning, that's 20 years.
Watson and her wife Garnett Harrison remember the early days of JASMYN, when the community was far less accepting.
