October is just right around the corner, and with National Coming Out Day drawing near, we want to do something special for you.
As a foundation, our goal is to encourage and lift you up. So this October, we want to bring visibility and validity to every queer experience - we believe that all coming out journeys are valid and need to be shared. If you let us, we'd love to share yours with the world.
Whether you've JUST come out, are thinking about coming out or have been out for years, we want to share your story in whatever medium or form of expression comes most naturally to you.
Every story is different, some experiences are unexpectedly easy and some have unexpected and lasting consequences. Whatever your journey is like, it's definitely worth sharing and deserves to be in the spotlight.
That's why we organized Emergence, to celebrate the different coming out stories from the community and bring attention to queer experiences. Share your journey with us and if selected, we will share it with the world.
We use the word “story” loosely because stories are expressed differently and in a million different mediums. Whether you’re a writer, a videographer, an artist or anything in between, we want you to submit whatever expression is most meaningful and encapsulating for YOU.
