Coming Out

A growing collection of stories about being lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender in the South.

Living Collections bring together Hidden South Stories, Road Notes, and Observations about specific subjects or groups of people. Living Collections continue to evolve over time as more content is added.


I travel all over the Southeast U.S. in search of stories. I've recently started asking people to write a note about something that has been weighing heavy on them and drop it in a lock box.  Here are some notes from various regions that relate to this topic. 

Special thanks to Susan Turner for helping me bring this collection together.
