These People Are Telling Their Pride Stories for National Coming Out Day

Today is National Coming Out Day. To mark the occasion, Capital Pride has asked people to create videos for a new site called HAVEPRIDE365.org.

Capital Pride also produces the annual Capital Pride Festival. Many videos on the site showcase the obstacles that LGBTQ individuals have overcome, the people or institutions that have helped them through difficult times, and the things in which they take pride.

Take a look at some of the inspiring submissions:
