#84 Non-Linear Coming Out (The Many Daily Attractions)

We're talking coming out tonight. We still live in a world where many people feel the need to 'come out of the closet' - or not. Names, orientations, genders, identities - sometimes it feels there's a lot of things we're obliged to let on just to get on with it. Sai debuts as they, Nicky, Nida and Yen talk out their own experiences with coming out about different things to different people at different times. And you? You do you.
