There is 1 comment on My Coming Out Story: Vincent Stephens

  1. These have been nice stories this past month, but consider how the title “My Coming Out Story” perpetuates harmful heteronormative and cisgendered attitudes. “Coming out” places pressure on queer folks to disclose and confess our identities to the world when there is no equal expectation among cis-het people. This then places guilt and a perception of weakness when a queer person does not disclose their identity. Additionally, not everyone has the privilege to disclose their identity safely.
