I am currently editing a collection of coming out stories which is to be published at the later part of this year.
I need your stories. But it wouldn’t be fair for me to ask for yours without including mine.
I came out at the beginning of 2016 after struggling with accepting the fact that I am gay for 22 years. I came out to my parents via a letter which I mixed into the daily post before taking the dog for a walk. I got a call fro my parents during the dog walk and my life was changed for the better.
The collection will contain the real life letters, texts, emails, statements, dialogue anything you have be it either a positive or negative reaction to coming out to your most significant person.
Please be brave. Be open. Be honest.
I won’t edit your words. They’re part of your story. Part of your journey. If you ant to write about it in retrospect, that’s fine.
If you want to go back to that time and write through the eyes of you before coming out, that’s also great.
The mission for this collection is to open the eyes to people who actually don’t understand the internal strife people in the LGBT community.
If you are interested in being a part of this collection, please email me either on here with a brief overview and we can go from there.
Alternatively, feel free to email me at email@example.com
Together we can do some good for people that really need a bit of hope.
