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.

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

Kristy grew up in Lawson, Missouri, and she was raised in a religious home where being gay was not accepted. She came out as a sophomore at Illinois State University and excelled in basketball. She now lives in New York City where she trains athletes at Columbia University and organizes Proposition NYC, the “hottest new Friday party to hit the New York girl scene.” She says she has never been more comfortable in her own skin and believes that creating a dialogue about sexuality is the best way to make room for compassion and understanding.
