Coming out: another look

In this podcast from our LGBT+ Lawyers Division, we hear Christos Paphiti, attorney at Sharpe Pritchard, on his views on coming out.

Coming out is something that many who identify as LGBT+ feel compelled to do, sometimes even to legitimize themselves and their identity.

Christos found himself among his siblings – who had been out or were contemplating there – asking if this was something he should do too.

He explores in the discussion how being his authentic self without shame meant he didn’t feel like coming out was a necessary part of solidifying his identity.

Listen to better understand this different and refreshing perspective.
