“It (being in the closet) was what I thought I needed to do to survive.”
In honor of National Coming Out Day, we wanted to share with you this beautiful video created by BuzzFeed titled ‘Before Vs. After: Coming Out.’
In the video, 3 inspirational queer souls share their personal stories on what their lives were like before and after coming out.
Watch Before Vs. After: Coming Out below:
A few important things to keep in mind:
– Come out on your own terms. Do it when you feel ready and safe to do so.
– Coming out is an individual experience that must be done by the individual. Regardless of intention, you must never take the decision and moment away from anyone.
– Coming out is part of the journey, not the destination.
– Whether you came out years ago, yesterday or have yet to come out, please know that Mister Scandal is here for YOU. Email us anytime [email protected]
