For some people, understanding and accepting feelings and attractions is simple and straightforward; for others, it can be difficult. It’s a complicated process which often causes feelings of confusion, doubt, guilt, shame, excitement, fear, relief and anxiety.

The Coming Out is a collaborative project. It’s a collection of coming out stories, real life coming out stories from gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans-gender people. The goal of The Coming Out is to inspire, support and unite those who are living their lives either completely, or partially in the closet. The purpose of the book is not to encourage people to come out before they are ready, but rather to expose them to first hand accounts from people who have already been through, and are still going through the process themselves.

Where will the stories come from? They’ll come from you. We want you to share your coming out story. Any gender, identity or sexuality. Happy, sad, serious, successful, funny or however. We want you to share your own experience.

To produce the book, we need approximately $8,000. The funds raised will go to cover the cost of:

  • Content Curating
  • Book Trailer Cinematography 
  • Custom Cover
  • ISBN Assignment
  • Worldwide Book Distribution
  • Book Design and Page Layout
  • Custom Interior Design
  • Digital Formatting and Distribution

The profits from the book are going to support an LGBT Organization. The profits will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign, which is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. 

If you can't financially contribute, that doesn't mean you can't help:

  • Share the project with your friends and family
  • Spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, etc.
