In celebration of Vancouver Pride Week (beginning July 28), Vancity Buzz invites its LGBTQ readers to submit their personal stories of “coming out” and acceptance. These stories will be posted on Vancity Buzz during Pride Week 2014.
For those who identify as LGBTQ, the process to accept their self identity and to “come out” to family and friends can be the most challenging yet liberating experience they might ever have in their lives. Coming out is certainly a different experience for everyone when some experiences are difficult to imagine while others are empowering and heart-warming. It is, after all, the process of revealing one’s true being and heart.
Vancity Buzz is a fully-inclusive organization and a supporter of the LGBTQ community. For Pride 2014, we are inviting our LGBTQ readers to submit their own coming out stories as a means of inspiring others – to help other local LGBTQ Vancouverites find their way by relating to your experience.
If you need some inspiration, see the coming out story submissions from 2013.
