    Look Both Ways: A journey through the lives of Bermuda's LGBT+allies

    Hello, are you ready to explore? Welcome to Look Both Ways, an audio walking tour of queer life in Bermuda. Right now you should be standing on the steps of the O’Hara House with XLCatlin behind you.

    What does it really mean to walk in someone else’s shoes? How does empathy spark or compassion grow? Today you’ll get to walk around Hamilton in someone else shoes as we hear stories from members of the LGBTQ community. Maybe you’re an ally or identify as LGBTQ, perhaps you’re just curious, or someone you know or love is LGBTQ. Whatever your reason for listening in, know that with each step you take and each story you listen in on, you are helping to create a more compassionate and connected community.

    Before we get underway I want to remind you to please pay attention to your surroundings at all times. Today’s tour will last about 40 minutes and will finish right here where you are standing now.
    You can put your phone in your bag, pocket or purse as our eyes won’t be glued to maps or gadgets. Keep your heart, mind and eyes open and please be extra careful when crossing the street.

    OK, let’s get going. With the XLCatlin building at your back turn left and start walking down Bermudiana Road.

    While you walk, I'll briefly explain how VoiceMap works.

    It uses your location to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. This means that you can put your phone away now. Don't worry if I'm silent for a while, when I'm not giving directions or telling stories. There's a map on your screen if you ever feel lost, and if you do get way off track without noticing, VoiceMap will let you know.

    Keep going.
