The writers and editors of The Stranger have a book out called How To Be A Person: The Stranger’s Guide to College, Sex, Intoxicants, Tacos, and Life Itself and coming out of the closet is one of the many subjects they cover. In promotion of the book, the’ve release a little video sharing a suggestion on how to come out and tell someone you’re gay. The book has tons of info on things that everyone else “forgot” to tell you, including:
“How to have a conversation, how to turn a crush into something more, everything there is to know about physics (in a single paragraph!), what the music you like says about you, spoiler alerts for big novels so you can flirt with English majors as if you’ve already read them, how to come out (should you happen to be gay), how to deal with a hangover, how to binge drink and not die, how to do laundry, how to do drugs (and which ones you should never do), sexual positions you should try, how to write a great sentence, and a state-by-state guide to the U.S. of A. It’s all here, along with Dan Savage‘s very best advice about sex and love.”
The cute video below shows how to come out in a very simplistic way. Hopefully it helps someone get both feet out the door!
