In March 2020, CBRC partnered with Quadrangle NL and the AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador to deliver Pivot in St. John’s. This leadership program is focused on building capacity in 2SLGBTQIA+ communities to address systemic health inequities.
Pivot participants created “(Un)Covered: Sex at the Kitchen Table” - a series of webinars to talk about personal experience, knowledge, and the impact of 2SLGBTQIA+ exclusion from sexual health education programs and healthcare.
Episode 3, (I’m) Coming Out, was recorded on November 14, 2020.
In this episode, panelists discuss the process of coming out. Known for the moment where someone discloses their sexual or gender identities, actually “coming out” is quite complicated. It can be unsettling and awkward. It can be funny or embarrassing. It can also be wonderful. The panel included Kayla Hearn (she/her), Karina Esparza Sosa (she/her), Max Zhong (he/him) and was moderated by Pivot graduate Jennifer Snow (she/they) with land acknowledgement by Isabella Lacey (she/her).
