Closeted Stories Uncovered

For many members of the LGBTQ+ community, declaring one’s sexuality, also known as “coming out of the closet,” is a big deal and often a life-changing experience. Sharing with family and friends one’s sexuality or identity often generates feelings of nervousness and fear but may also release a wave of varied emotions like relief and excitement. No matter what they are coming out as or who they are coming out to, each person’s narrative is different. In this feature — inspired by the popular blog Humans of New York — several LHS students recite their personal experience with coming out.
