Publisher's Summary

Celebrate Pride with Shangela (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Nikki Levy (Don’t Tell My Mother!), and six fabulous storytellers as they share heartfelt, hilarious, true tales about coming out.   

Coming Out Party, produced especially for Pride Month in collaboration with the acclaimed live show Don’t Tell My Mother!, brings Audible members a collection of uplifting, raw, and hilarious stories from queer actors, comedians, and personalities. Cohosted by beloved drag queen Shangela and storytelling maven Nikki Levy, Coming Out Party is a joyous celebration of LGBTQIA+ people and personalities.  

You’ll hear live stories from Grey’s Anatomy star Jake Borelli, whose on-screen journey inspired him to come out IRL, comic Nicky Paris (Wendy Williams), whose high school production of Peter Pan taught him "how to grow up", and comic Daniel Webb, who was so fabulous he never really needed to come out...that is, until he met Barack Obama in a BBQ joint. You’ll also hear stories told from inside the closet (literally, from our makeshift home studios - a certain virus cancelled our live shows, but it can’t hurt our pride). Hear how The L Word’s Rosanny Zayas had her first kiss with the coolest girl in school, how Pose’s Angelica Ross navigated “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” during her time in the navy, and how author Lisa Dickey came out...to the secretary of state himself. 

Pride might look different this year, but it can never be canceled! Listen in!

Fun Read

I enjoyed the voices of the stories, as well as the details. I did not like how the hosts were mostly male. I am a female and would have loved to hear more female (lesbian) coming out stories. I chose this rating because this reading could have been better! Overall, it was a fun read, several parts made me laugh!

Loved!

Funny, gritty, vulgar and over the top. I LOVED everything about this!
All I can say is 'I want more!'.

The Brave and Beautiful

I wanted to listen so I could learn and I did learn that these LGBT folks are so relatable and resilient and worthy of our love and respect. I'm a straight black muddled aged woman and I support the rights of LGBT because its the right thing to do. God Bless

A breath of fresh air. What a celebration of the LGBTQ community. It was sometimes heartbreaking but mostly just a joyful listen.

LOVED IT

Absolutely enjoyed every minute of this! my best friend is gay and I moved away from him when I left for graduate studies and just listening to this brought up so many memories and fun times. I really enjoyed listening to this. Thank you for the smile in my day.

Funny, touching, and revealing short memoirs.

This was a great way to celebrate Gay Pride Month. A collection of short memoirs told by the individuals themselves, Coming Out Party is filled with some funny and touching stories from some well known people who share part of their journey on coming out as LGBTQ. Happy Pride y'all!
