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.



Chrissy is a girl from Mississippi who filmed her experience coming out to her family. Originally she came out as bisexual, but now she identifies as a lesbian, and her family and friends still support her being who she is.


Matt is a college student who struggled with his sexuality for a while before finally acceptinh himself. His coming-out was a long, difficult process but he hopes that “this is just what you needed to hear today."
