Manny’s: Tell Your Coming Out Story Pt. 2 – Open Mic
June 27 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Coming Out for most queer/LGBTQ people is one of the most powerful moments of our lives. It is the moment that usually comes after a long time of soul-searching and coming to terms with owning and accepting who we are. And for many the decision to share our truth with the world, our families and our friends can be terrifying, exhilarating, dangerous, liberating, painful, joyful, even funny and it can be all of these things.
Even today being queer in this world remains for some radical and dangerous. Some of us are accepted fully, some of us discarded by families, thrown out of our homes, churches, etc. Some are welcomed with open arms.
But for sure Coming Out is an act of courage that transforms one’s life and the lives of those we love.
Come hear some stories. A few tears, some laughter and a healthy dose of awe in our fellow human beings. We are curating a diverse group of storytellers and hoping to give space for those who attend to share a bit also.
