COMING OUT: Stories of Challenge, Hope & Inspiration


In honor of National Coming Out Day, GALAS would like to create an inspirational and supportive resource for those in our community around coming out.

We are putting a call out for personal coming out stories which we would like to feature permanently on the GALAS website  We welcome you to submit your stories, written or in video format (using your phone or camera). 

The hope is that through personal stories we can find inspiration in the potential for acceptance among families and loved ones.  For many, the darkest moments are toward the beginning of the coming out process.  We want to show those who are early in this process that there is hope.  

Please submit your story to  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Please check out our stories HERE.

Donating to GALAS helps us maintain the resources and services we provide for the community.
