Harry’s Coming Out Story

Harry Dozier of KaleidoScot shares his story of coming out: “I came out when I was 19. I come from a very conservative Christian home and knew that my decision to come out would not be welcomed. Thankfully I was in the secure environment of University so plucked up the courage. As expected my mother told me I was no longer welcome at home (one of her more colourful euphemisms was: I’m ok with dogs pooping, but not in my house) and unfortunately that made me hesitant to tell others.

“Thankfully, two years later, I joined the Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus and found a community and family who helped me become stronger and loved me for who I was. I then moved to Scotland (as I felt I had nothing to lose by leaving the US) and that has been the greatest decision of my life. While I wish my initial experience had been one of love, it’s pushed me to do bigger and better things. Being honest with who I am has helped me become the person I’ve always wanted to be. And I’ve found friends, family and love from more places than I ever could have imagined.”
