One proud Mom

It sucks that coming-outs are still a thing. It sucks that some people have to announce their romantic and/or sexual preferences as if they’re plague-ridden.

But you gotta deal with the time and society you live in so if you’re in a country where dogmatic religion and “traditions” still play a big role in many people’s lives you’ll hopefully have a mother as supportive as Drake’s.

She was so proud of her son that she took out a newspaper’s ad to announce her son’s coming out. Kinda weird? Yeah. Probably done with the best intentions? Very likely.

You can read more about it here if you want and watch Drake’s coming out video below.

Patrick Haggerty was a teenager in rural Dry Creek, Washington, in the late 1950s. In this StoryCorps animated short, The Saint of Dry Creek, he remembers the advice his father, a dairy farmer, gave him when he realized his son was gay. Haggerty’s interview was recorded as part of the StoryCorps OutLoud initiative, and this film is in partnership with the It Gets Better Project.

Coming Out with PowerPoint

Coming out to friends and family can be a hurdle, but coming out to a group of strangers in a public setting is another feat entirely. That didn’t keep Benton Sorensen from coming out as transgender during a class presentation about inspiration. After showing a picture on the overhead projector of a young girl with a pretty smile and long, light brown hair, Sorensen confidently shares his story of female-to-male transitioning with a classroom full of strangers.

Our society places an incredible amount of pressure on all of us to fit its predetermined heteronormative standards of sexuality, sometimes making it difficult for any person on the queer qpectrum to find a voice. But Sorensen’s experiences shared in both his class PowerPoint as well as on his YouTube vlog make him a fearless proponent for trans education and acceptance. “Our professor assigned us an ‘inspiration’ project,” he writes in the video’s description. “We had the freedom to do whatever we wanted with it, so I thought it was a great opportunity to come out to my new class and tell them that I am a female to male transgender.”
