Being Gay in Iowa: Coming Out
Today we have Part Three of our week-long series “Being Gay in Iowa.” Often, the most emotionally stressful time in a gay person’s life is when they come out to their family and friends. The announcement is so difficult for many, they don’t make it until middle age, after they’ve been married and raised children. It’s getting easier for younger gays, who are coming out in high school or even before. Iowa Public Radio’s Rob Dillard met with a number of gay Iowans to find out what it was like to step out of the closet.
