Out and Proud: LGBT Youth Share Their Stories

October is an important month for supporting LGBT youth. In honor of National Coming Out Day earlier this month and Spirit Day today, these videos feature stories of empowered youth and their positive coming-out tales.




During an assembly honoring Martin Luther King Jr., whose theme was breaking the silence about things that matter, a high school senior comes out to her entire school. Kayla’s speech displays an inner strength that should be emulated by anyone who feels as if they can’t say what they feel.


A transgender teen who also has his own YouTube channel, TheRealAlexBertie, Alex shares his story about coming out as transgender to his mom. His delivery is funny, as are his other videos, and that accent only helps matters.
