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

Hillary, one of my oldest friends, grew up in a suburb south of Boston. Though we shared our childhood years together, it wasn’t until recently that we both discovered that we were both gay! Therefore, I knew I had to interview her for this project! Hillary had an epiphany at summer camp at age 15 when she discovered that a fellow female camper had feelings for her. She went through the next few years dating both men and women, and she now defines herself as gay. A talented musician, Hillary started writing music as a teenager and was a member of an a capella group in college. She now lives in Brooklyn with her longtime girlfriend and works for pingg.com. Check out Hillary’s story!

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

Ellen, a Connecticut native, came out to her mom when she was 17 after she learned that her girlfriend was being kicked out of her home by her suspicious mother. Though Ellen’s mom “could be a PFLAG mom” today, it took years for her to realize that Ellen’s attraction to women was more than just a phase. Ellen’s father is also extremely supportive and relays gay-related stories to his daughter when he catches them on TV or in the newspaper. Ellen currently lives in Brooklyn with her 2 cats and plans on getting married in the future.
