Are you ever done coming out?

Joe Irvine, 23

This month for Coming Out Day, I made a short video sketch about my experience of coming out. Coming out narratives often focus on how an LGBTQIA+ person breaks the news to the most significant people in their lives: parents, close friends, etc. I decided, instead, to instead focus on the coming out that happens after these initial watershed moments, highlighting the ongoing process of coming out which for queer people never really stops.
How, for instance, do you come out to an estranged aunt?
