Slate magazine, in cooperation with the website Longform, does a weekly collection of the best of longform journalism. This weekend, they focused on coming-out stories. The first piece is the buzzed-about essa–My So-Called Ex-Gay Life— by Gabriel Arana’a experience in ex-gay therapy featured in the American Prospect.
Also included in the series are:
Gareth Thomas … The Only Openly Gay Male Athlete by Gary Smith in Sports Illustrated.
The Kingdom in the Closet by Nadya Labi in The Atlantic.
Coming Out in Middle School by Benoit Denizet-Lewis in the New York Times magazine
The Coming Out Story I Never Thought I’d Write by Steve Kornacki in Salon
The Story of a Suicide by Ian Parker in the New Yorker.
One of the things noted in the Longform piece was the lack of coming out stories about women. Do you have any recommendations?
