Amy’s Coming Out Story from I Want the World to Know on Vimeo.

Amy grew up in a suburb outside of Boston and moved to NYC to work at one of the top fashion schools as an Administrator, and to continue living in a double life in a college dormitory to follow her passion: comedy. Amy is the co-producer of the popular Manhattan-based comedy troupe, Dykes On Mics, that Time Out NY has billed as a “best bet for comedy” numerous times. She also produces Generosi-titties, a topless comedy extravaganza that raises money for Breast Cancer. Beckerman was invited on the Howard Stern Show on March 8th, 2010 to chat and promote the 1st annual “Generosi-titties” at Comix. Amy is one of the few that genuinely loves to make people laugh. She says things other people think, but wouldn’t have the balls to say. She is cynical with a twist of sarcasm she instills with every bite of life. Please watch her share her coming out story, and check out all of her projects:

Betsy’s Coming Out Story from I Want the World to Know on Vimeo.

Betsy, a Boston native, currently lives in New York City and is about to finish her Masters degree in Educational Theatre at NYU. She first realized she might be gay when she was 14 and wrote it down on a piece of paper in the school nurse’s office, which she still has to this day. However, Betsy didn’t act on those feelings until her freshman year of college. Betsy is now more confident than ever and believes that her sexuality is just a small piece of what makes her who she is.

Kristen’s Coming Out Story from I Want the World to Know on Vimeo.

Kristen is originally from Denver, Colorado. She began questioning her sexuality when she was a teenager and found support from her friends, family, and local LGBT organizations such as PFLAG. She founded the Gay-Straight Alliance at her high school and came out to her entire school as a way to make the group known on campus. She earned a college scholarship for her work and courage and continued to be a part of LGBT organizations during and after college. She now lives in New York City.
