If you attended high school, you have a story to tell! Share your story through Live Out Loud’s latest initiative, The Homecoming Project. This exciting initiative encourages “out” LGBT people to return to their high school and use their story to inspire a new generation of youth. Your story doesn’t have to be heroic, comical, or filled with drama. You simply have to be willing to tell kids about how you made it through high school and lived to tell the tale.
Do you want to make a difference in the lives of LGBT youth through The Homecoming Project? Live Out Loud will be with you every step of the way. As you contact your high school, schedule your Homecoming Project, and prepare your “talk,” Live Out Loud will stand beside you to make sure you have the tools you need!
Don’t worry – you don’t have to speak at a school-wide assembly or for a gym full of kids. In fact, most Homecoming Projects take place in classrooms for small club meetings, health classes, or small groups of LGBT identified students.
The following guide will get you started. In the following pages, you will learn how to:
- Make contact with your high school
- Arrange a time to speak for a class or club
- Prepare your presentation
