National Coming Out Week: Nadia’s story
Nadia Vanessa Toro, vice president of Queer People of Color, says that she didn’t have a typical coming out story.
Nadia Vanessa Toro, vice president of Temple’s Queer People of Color, said that she didn’t have a typical coming out story. She simply brought her girlfriend home to her parents’ house—and her family was OK with it.
She said that she’s privileged to come from such an accepting household. While different communities face unique hurdles during the coming out process, Toro suggests that coming out to yourself is often the most important step.
It’s Temple’s eighth annual National Coming Out Week. Celebrate LGBTQIA individuals all week on campus and look out for powerful stories like Toro’s.
