Coming Out vs. Inviting In


Print Version

Coming Out Inviting In
Focus on one person revealing themself (for support or judgement) Focus on a group sharing the journey together. Acknowledges that those with whom we share our identities carry their own experience of those identities
One conversation, a singluar event Continuous process, involves multiple events
Identity we're "out" as is constant Identities and our understanding of them are fluid and change over time
A global effect that depends on a created false binary between being "out" or "closted" Always a new conversation, with over 7 billion people on the planet no one is "out" to all of them
Only for LGBTQIA community Everyone engages in the process of self-discovery and deciding how much to share with whom
