The Portland Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are hosting an event for National Coming Out Day on Oct. 11th, and we want to hear your coming out story!
Call for submissions
Have you come out as a Lesbian, Gay, Bi, or Trans person? Tell us about it through your poetry, slam poetry, essays, spoken word pieces, or any kind of performance art! Tell us about when you realized you were different, or the moment you decided you were going to be yourself no matter what others thought! Share your first "gay" date, or your most exciting, embarrassing, or heart fluttering moment.
Theprocess is different for everyone and coming out can be scary, stressful, and painful at times, but these pieces should focus on the positive aspects of coming out and speaking your truth. Our goal is to encourage and support each other. This is a celebration of you being you!
Submissions should be 3-5 minutes long, and are considered copyright to their owners. We'll be asking 18-20 people to perform their work live for the celebration at Crush in Portland, Oregon on NCOD from 7pm to 9pm..
Please send your submission and any questions to OutandProud@portlandsisters.
