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.
