What is VideoOut?
VideoOut is a library of coming out stories told by the LGBTQ community.
We are a digital platform that allows LGBTQ people to share their story in their own voice. We also produce programs like Kindness Party and SpeakOut. Our stories unite us, and they help us build a better community for everyone.
Why was VideoOut started?
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. 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.
You can use the contact form, email us at firstname.lastname@example.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.

If you love to write, let us know. We're dedicated to representing the diverse voices of all LGBTQ people by allowing them to take ownership of our written content. We invite any members of the LGBTQ community to submit written pieces (500 - 800 words) about topics they feel are important.
