October 11th was National Coming Out Day, and to commemorate, staff members at LGBT Life Center shared their own coming out experiences through a social media campaign called #LifeTeamComingOut. Throughout the day, many different inspiring and emotional stories were shared from both people who identify as LGBTQ+ or as an Ally. While some of us came out in younger years such as high school or college, many of our staff did not come out until later in life. Overall, a major theme for this day of story sharing and experiencing swapping was that no matter your age, it is never too early or too late to be your true self. These are their stories.
A huge thanks, once again, to the people who were bold enough to share their stories with the world. Each and every experience is unique and inspiring in its own way, and we hope these stories spark others to be true to themselves.
