I thought I would share a story with you I just saw on the local news. It was a documentary titled “The Road to Coming out” that a man created to document his journey coming out to his friends and family. His journey started in Vancouver and he made stops along the way to tell his family and friends that he is gay. The news clip showed him using social media to assist him in coming out to his loved ones. The documentary showed his moms reaction which was especially touching to have this on camera. He uploaded his video to youtube and has had over 10,000 views in just a few weeks. He said he was taking advantage the power of social media.

I thought it was a nice story about someone using social media for such a strong and positive message.
