My Experience of Coming Out in Kentucky...


My name is Whitney and I am one half of the vlogging and blogging duo known as 'Wegan,' My wife Megan and I conquered long distance between Hawaii and the UK, and now reside in England. We live our lives out and proud on the internet as a married lesbian couple; raising femme visibility. However, life was not always this way for me. I came out when I was 15 years old in a very small conservative town in Kentucky over 10 years ago. It was one of the hardest things I ever did, but one of the best decisions I ever made.

I have been asked for years from our followers for my coming out story and I have always been reluctant and nervous to discuss and relive my experiences of coming out in Kentucky. However, the more that I see of Kim Davis and Kentucky in the news, the more I want to stand up and be proud of not only being gay, but being a Christian and a Kentuckian too!

Coming out in Kentucky was by no means an easy ride. The struggle was real and the challenges I faced were tough. However, looking back now I can clearly see that if it wasn't for those challenging times, I never would have become the woman I am today.

Coming out is never easy, no matter where you live or how old you are, it's always a challenging thing to do, but if you watch my video I hope you can relate if you're having a tough time coming out too- because please believe me, it does get better. We won't let the Kim Davis' of the world win, because we're far too good for that!
