Join us for My Coming Out Story!

Sep 20, 2021 | Seattle Pride

We’re super excited to be partnering with C89.5 in advance of National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11 to encourage the LGTBQIA+ community to tell YOUR coming out stories at a My Coming Out Story video booth online at and in person at Seattle Pride’s All Together Now (Oct. 9) celebration!

Why you should share your story

Sharing your coming out story - sometimes painful, sometimes humorous, and always important - has the ability to hold the door open and create space for others in our community to live authentically. It’s important that we share our experiences to help others find the courage they need to be their authentic selves, and to gain more acceptance and recognition among the wider community.

How to share your story

There are two ways to share your story with us – and both are super easy and will take a few minutes or less!

1. Online at in our virtual video booth. You’ll be able to self-record your own story on your computer or phone – it’s as easy as that!

2. In person at All Together Now on Oct. 9 in Volunteer Park, 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. Find the C89.5 booth at the event and let us know that you’d like to record your coming out story. We’ll have a private space for you to record without everyone watching.

How to find your story

The powerful video testimonials will be treated with sensitivity and the respect they deserve, and will be archived at and compiled for a Seattle Pride YouTube channel release on National Coming Out Day to generate empathy, create new advocates -- and inspire others to come out. You can (and should!) share your story on your social media channels, and with family and friends after they are posted on Oct. 11th.
