Tell YOUR Story

This is intended to
showcase true stories of when you came out, OR your decision NOT to come out. (Both
are equally correct choices). We will take a cross section of the stories we receive
and assign actors to read your story dramatically with appropriate sound effects and
music.

Here are the rules:
[1] NO SEXUAL CONTENT!  We’re not interested in the time you lost your virginity. We
are not publishing any “sex” stories, these are stories of how you told other people
that you were gay or lesbian or bi or whatever.

[2] DO NOT NAME NAMES: Refer to people as “My mom” or “My best friend” or “the
bully” etc. You would not want to be forced out of the closet, so please don’t make
other people uncomfortable by naming them.

[3] DO NOT INCLUDE INFORMATION THAT WILL IDENTIFY YOU: This is not a way to get
dates <grin>. This is to help other people who are thinking about coming out and the
best way to help them is to provide them with REAL LIFE experiences.

[4] PLEASE DO NOT SWEAR: Swearing happens all the time, we know, but a large portion
of our listenership is early to mid teens. They don’t need to hear more of that
language… BUT BE HONEST. If you had a bad coming out and people said evil or
hateful things to you OR about you, put them in and trust us to find a “cleaner” way
to say it.

[5] DON’T CENSOR YOURSELF: If it was a GOOD coming out or a BAD One, Speak your
mind. People need to know BOTH sides of this situation if they are to make the right
decision for them.

Please limit your story to about 3 pages in length, In english and
submit them to:

by SEPTEMBER 30 of this year.

We appreciate all of you and the courage it takes to make this life changing
choice.
