Profiles in Pride held an event during DreamWeek in San Antonio, Texas, where several LGBTQIA people told their powerful coming out stories in person in front of a live audience. See the recording here.
Mel Wells has had to come out of two closets: she left the Mormon church, and she later came out as lesbian. Now she gives back to the LGBTQ community with her genderless swimsuit line, Beefcake Swimwear.
When Belinda came out as gay, she was rejected by her family and religion. These experiences shaped her, and when her son came out as transgender, she welcomed him with open arms and became an advocate for trans youth and their parents.
