To celebrate Vancouver Pride Week, which begins on July 28, Vancity Buzz is inviting its LGBTQ readers to submit their personal stories of “coming out” and acceptance. These stories will be posted on Vancity Buzz during Pride Week 2015.
For those who identify as LGBTQ, the process of accepting one’s own identity and to “come out” to family and friends is often described as an extremely challenging and liberating experience.
Coming out is a different experience for everyone/ While some experiences are difficult and heart-wrenching, others are empowering and heart-warming. After all, it a process of revealing one’s true self and heart.
Vancity Buzz is a fully-inclusive organization and a supporter of the LGBTQ community. To continue an ongoing tradition within our organization, for Pride 2015 we are inviting our LGBTQ readers to submit their own coming out stories as a means of inspiring others – to help other LGBTQ Vancouverites find their way by relating to other experiences.
