Coming out to yourself

Coming out stories online

There are many heartfelt and thoughtful coming out stories. Here are a few which have caught our eye ... a selection we pulled together in 2015 when we launched this website.

There have been a ton of coming out stories since then. Don’t be put off that some are a few years old as the issues are surprisingly similar across decades and generations.

However, we would like to make the point that you are not obliged to make a video. It's not a required coming out rite of passage ... and just because 'everybody' else seems to be doing it doesn't mean you have to.

Coming out should be about you, on your terms, and your journey. So please think carefully before jumping out of the closet onto YouTube!
