In celebration of SD LGBT Pride 2017, and in honor of the 20th anniversary of EllenDeGeneres’ ground-breaking, ground-shaking “Coming Out” episode on her sitcom Ellen, San Diego Writers, Ink is sponsoring a special “Coming Out Stories” event.

What does “coming out” mean to you? We selected a few stories from all the submissions we received and asked the authors to read them at our “Coming Out Stories” event during Pride weekend.

Important Dates

June 27th (midnight) – Deadline for submissions (USE THIS LINK)

July 5th – Selected readers notified

July 16th at (5:30 p.m). – Our special “Coming Out Stories” event at The Ink Spot

Everyone is invited to the reading. Bring your friends and family to mark this special occasion. Invite those out-of- town visitors who are here to celebrate San Diego LGBT Pride. If you want a reminder of what it was like in 1997, you can watch “The Puppy Episode” of Ellen, (the “coming out” episode) here, and here’s a link to Ellen’s celebration of the 20th anniversary on Ellen TV.com.
