The Homecoming Project

When you reflect on your high school experience, chances are there are aspects you would choose to do differently. Did you struggle with your identity? Did you have a hard time fitting in? Were you unsure of who to turn to for support?

Through The Homecoming Project, Live Out Loud is encouraging the LGBT community to make the journey back to their high schools to speak with a new generation of students about the unique experiences which have shaped the individuals they are today.

By participating in the home coming project, you will:

  1. Serve as a positive example for LGBT youth
  2. Empower young adults to reconsider the challenges and unspoken fears of growing up gay
  3. Replace your old and uncomfortable memories of high school with new and positive experiences
