Coming Out Stories

In celebration of National Coming Out Day, observed October 11, we invite you to add your coming out story to LA County Library’s Community Collection on BiblioBoard. Everyone’s story is unique, whether it was coming out to a special person, parents, family, or the world. We welcome anecdotes, poems, paintings, videos, and songs that spotlight your journey. Thank you for helping us build this very special collection!
