Non-Profit Spotlight: VideoOUT


VideoOut's founder, Jordan Reeves, didn't come out until he was 23. He knew he was gay from a very early age, but he didn't understand what that really meant. He grew up in Hueytown, Alabama, a place where he felt he had to repress his truth. It was too painful and unfamiliar for him to admit even to himself that he was gay, so he didn't. He lived a lie. He didn't know any gay people, and he didn't know anything about coming out. It wasn't until he heard Cliff Simon's story that he realized he wasn't alone. Cliff's story gave Jordan the strength to share his own.


Jordan Reeves
Founder, VideoOut

Jordan wants that same experience for everyone. “Stories have the power to unlock our personal truths, and allow us to live as the most authentic versions of ourselves. VideoOut exists so that every story can be told, and nobody ever feels alone. Whether you're 23 in Alabama or 78 in Ohio, VideoOut wants to provide access to stories that inspire and challenge you.”

Jordan invites everyone to add your own story to the library of coming out stories. “Visibility matters, and we want the world to know the many faces of the LGBTQ community. Brothers, aunts, mothers, neighbors, doctors, teachers, cashiers, and bus drivers - every story matters. And they all deserve to be heard.”
Jordan says. “By sharing that collective voice with VideoOut, we amplify real life stories of the LGBTQ community. We believe when our voice is strong, nothing can stand against us and full equality will one day be a reality.”





VideoOUT is a resource to support the coming out process by sharing personal “coming out” stories. Some are painful, others funny and all share the commonality of an individual’s need to belong.

To learn more about this organization chat up Jordan at the next M3 or check them out at VideoOUT.org.
