Series on Coming Out

Queer people and their allies are encouraged to submit video, images, and text to the weekly show for possible inclusion.

Come out, come out wherever you are! MTV's college network, mtvU, this month launched a new TV series on young queers breaking free of the closet.

In creating the show, How Do I Say This? I'm Gay, mtvU teamed up the creators of HowDoISayThis.com, a Web site produced by University of California, Los Angeles, students aimed at counseling people before they come out. The highly successful HowDoISayThis.com began a year ago with funding from mtvU's Digital Incubator, a program aimed at launching the best student-developed media projects. Inspired by a college student asking for help on coming out to her family, the site became the first project of its kind to be turned into an original mtvU series.

How Do I Say This? I'm Gay will combine material from HowDoISayThis.com with original content from the site's student creators. Queer people and their allies are encouraged to submit video, images, and text to the weekly show for possible inclusion. The show is scheduled to air at 6 p.m. Eastern each Monday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

How Do I Say This? I'm Gay will be supported by MTV's Logo, an entertainment channel aimed at gay audiences, with Logo promoting the series both on-air and on its Web site. (The Advocate)
