What is VideoOut?

VideoOut is a library of coming out stories told by the LGBTQ community.

VideoOut is a new kind of editorial content that exists to amplify the voices of people across the spectrum of the LGBTQ community. 

VideoOut is an annual summit that gathers leading change-makers to identify and solve challenges that are facing the LGBTQ community.

Why was VideoOut started?

Be sure to check out the in-depth reason.

In a nutshell, Jordan Reeves grew up in Hueytown, Alabama - a small, conservative town with a lack of empathy for the LGBTQ community. Not knowing what to do at 18 years old, Jordan struggled to find himself until he was 23 years old. That's when he finally came out to his friends and family.

His desire to make it easier for anyone on a coming out journey led to VideoOut, a functional library of coming out stories where members of the LGBTQ community can find content that's relevant to their unique life experiences.

Who can participate?

VideoOut encourages everyone in the LGBTQ community, including allies, to share their experiences. That said, we caution you to be safe. It's not always ideal for people to come out. Wait until you're in a supportive, LGBTQ-friendly environment with people you can trust. Here's the best way to get started.

Every story is necessary, and all of our voices should be heard. One story is important, several stories are powerful, and all of our stories together are an unstoppable collective - a common narrative that proclaims, "We are LGBTQ and we deserve equality!"

You can use the contact form, email us at info@videoout.org, or give us a call at (929) 399-LGBT.

We're always here to answer any questions or talk about anything you've seen on our website. We'd also love to hear what ideas you have about VideoOut's future. After all, this is for you, so we want to know what you think.
