Searching for a new definition of “coming out”
Posted on March 9, 2013 by Comingout coil
The coming out project started in October 2010. Aya and me wanted to change the definition of “coming out” in Wikipedia. We started to interview lots of people about their coming out journey, not necessarily related to their sexuality orientation, it could be the fact they did not circumcised their son, they are vegetarian or they grew up in a violent family and more…
After more than 2 years of research about this term (and still searching), I think it’s time to change the “official” definition of “coming out” in Wikipedia. I think “Coming out” is a lifestyle.
It’s a choice you take/a decision you make to follow your deep believes And accept yourself as you are even if it is not what you are expected to be or to do.
It means to not choose the easy and conventional way and accepted way, to choose a way of living as you are.
What means coming out for you?
You can write your definition in the comment in your language (we need to change it in all languages )
