Presented by Emma Goswell, Coming Out Stories will take you to one the most important moments in many people’s lives.
It will perch you on sofas in suburban sitting rooms, stand you in front of officials’ desks, put you at the centre of a crowd in a noisy classroom, everywhere where these conversations have happened.
It doesn’t even matter if you haven’t had a conversation like this yourself, or indeed ever plan to. Everyone can recognise the innate human desire to love and be loved, and that’s what these stories are about.
Published in January 2021, Coming Out Stories is now available in print form!
Esteemed TV Writer and Producer Russell T Davies said of the book:
Coming Out Stories: Personal Experiences of Coming Out from Across the LGBTQ+ Spectrum is available from all good book shops including:
From Amazon Reviews:
I have to say I wish this book had existed at all the points of my life when I was thinking about coming out. The stories aren’t all positive to start with, but the ones I’ve read so far do demonstrate that no matter what happens in the initial moment, things do get better. They might not look how we hoped but it will be okay.
Would be a great handbook for teachers , counsellors etc. Highly recommended. We need more books like this.

“Telling my daughter was such a weight off my shoulders”
Claire didn’t come out as trans until her mid 40s when she had to tell both her wife and her teenage daughter.
Please be aware this interview may be triggering as it mentions both transphobia and sexual abuse.
