COMING OUT is a documentary film that follows Alden Peters as he accepts his sexual orientation and comes out to his friends and family. With over a year of experiences caught on camera, COMING OUT explores not just the disclosure of a sexual orientation, but the entire process after coming out of transitioning into an openly gay lifestyle in today's social media-driven world.
Prompted by the suicide of Tyler Clementi in the fall of 2010, a sense of urgency overcame Alden. He decided to come out on his own terms before someone else forced him out of the closet. This is the story of Alden claiming his identity and exploring the LGBTQ community for the first time. His story is not unique, but that's why it's important.
