The G Word gives citizens a voice to share their gender norm experiences and stories on a digital level. Readers can go to The G Word website and help educate the world on what they went through.. Srivistava feels that when everyone shares their experiences, a change can truly begin. “
Stories connect people. They make people say, “Me too!” about things they might not have felt connected to when they read about them as disembodied “issues” rather than as a relatable experience from a fellow human. Stories allow people to process their experiences and heal; they help form a community. They inspire us to expand or change our point of view. Most important to my work, stories can provide an alternative to mainstream narratives and allow us to break through norms. And in the right context, stories can inspire people to take action for change—to change not just their own lives but culture itself.”
