Are you prepeared to share your own coming out story?

Are you prepeared to share your own coming out story?

We know that not all journeys are the same. We know some are going to find it much more difficult than others.

Whilst Finn’s story - ”The Gratitude Of Life” - is a forthcoming work of fiction, the emotions and experiences the desperate teenager shares with the readers are likely to resonate with so many people who’ve also found themselves deciding whether to divulge an all-consuming secret.

Will Finn be strong enough to win his personal battles? Or will he give in to his overwhelming fears? Will his friends and family accept him for who he really is, or reject him and leave him lonely and afraid?

What desperate steps will his anxieties cause him to contemplate? Who’ll be there to pick up the pieces?

Your Story In Print

To make this much more than just another novel about teenage angst, we plan to incorporate some real-life stories. Possibly yours?

So if you feel you’d be happy to share some of your deepest sentiments and strongest memories, we’d love to hear from you. Perhaps your friends and family might like to contribute too? How did your coming out make them feel?

Some stories will be included in the book, some will be published on social media, some may even be invited to take part in a podcast. You can choose to remain anonymous.

To register your interest, or simply ask for more details, drop an email to MyStory@FinnStory.co.uk
