National Coming Out Day

AIR DATE: October 11, 2011

National Coming Out Day is October 11.  Locals reflect on how they first "came out," and how it affected their family, friends, and the rest of their lives.

    I was 15 years of age; raised in Southern California, surfer, good student and lesbian from an early age. I told my Mom and she sort of did not know how to handle the realization that her daughter was the way she was. I had a wonderful aunt to sat my mother down and said, "Davi- knows who she is, you are the one who needs help, not Davi." I am 66 years of age,still a lesbian and quite content with my life. My family has no qualms accepting myself and friends. We are family!!!!
