Note: Apologies for last month's audio quality. I was trying a few new methods, and my headphones were having issues. This month is an improvement, and next month should be better still as I experiment with various recording locations and devices in my new home.

As a polyamorous grayromantic pansexual genderqueer gentleman with a large social circle, I've come out of more closets than most. As a public speaker and trans educator, many of those coming-out experiences have been on a stage. Whether I'm coming out to a crowd of strangers or one-on-one with a person I've known my whole life, though, every "coming out" has taught me something.

This episode I discuss number five through eight of the most important lessons I've learned from coming out.
