The term “being out” changes depending upon the generation you grew up in. Generally, the term implies the sharing of an identity or experience that was formerly secret, where the person sharing is comfortable with the consequences of sharing. This secret may relate to sexual orientation, gender identity, sexual or physical violence, parental challenges, religious differences, or any of the many differences created to separate people. The goal of Being Out is to demonstrate how to support youth as they do the hard work of building self-confidence.
