This is Our Story: The Coming Out Monologue

web site

Deadline: March 3, 2020

interACT is thrilled to be partnering once again with playwright Tommy Jamerson to create a new work. This is Our Story: The Coming Out Monologues will be a project that we will be working on for the next several months in honor of Pride Month to be presented by interACT and a talented group of actors in June 2020 (exact weekend and dates tbd). The best part? The stories will come from you and will be dramatized by Tommy Jamerson and our Artistic Director, Nicholas J. Clarey.

We ask you to share your coming out story with us, keeping in mind that coming out is something that doesn't only happen once, but rather everyday. It is not something that only occurs when dealing with family. We have to come out to ourselves, coworkers, strangers, school administrations, and others. It also creates a shared story for those of us coming out and for those to whom we come out. It is not restricted to only Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual people; Pansexual, Asexual, HIV+, Transgender, Questioning, Allies, and others also have to do this too.

Help us to tell your story as our story.

- Please fill out the form online making sure to include your name and a correct email address so that we may contact you should your story be chosen!
- You may submit more than one story.
- You may submit multiple forms under the same name and email address.
- You do not have to write your story in monologue or dialogue format, as that will be done by the playwrights.
- Should your story be chosen for dramatization, names will be changed.
- We are seeking a variety of coming out stories, good, bad, various ages and ethnicities, culture specific, location specific, involving one person or several, etc. Please don't feel that you can't tell us your story because it may not be "good enough" or not stereotypical. There is nothing stereotypical about life, and this project should reflect that.
- The last day to submit stories is March 3, 2020. 
*****Please note: This is not a vote, please only tell each story once.
