Coming out is vital to the LGBTQ community, and Queerty is so excited to celebrate National #ComingOutDay. In honor of the occasion, we’ve chatted with some of our favorite out-and-proud people to discuss their unique coming out journeys and find out how their experiences have shaped who they are. Ve’ondre Mitchell, Isaiah Washington, Jake Wesley Rogers, Antoni Bumba and Xiomara Flores talk to us about why coming out is so important, how their lives have changed since coming out, and also offer support to anyone who’s thinking about taking that courageous leap for themselves.

Help make sure LGBTQ+ stories are being told...

We can't rely on mainstream media to tell our stories. That's why we don't lock Queerty articles behind a paywall. Will you support our mission with a contribution today?
