Coming Out Monologues

Break the Silence. Share Your Story.

“The Coming Out Monologues” (TCOM) was born at UCR in 2007. Student group Queer Alliance continues to organize the annual event, inspired by Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues.”

“The Coming Out Monologues” is a similar positive theater project that celebrates the diversity of the “coming out” experience through individual stories told live on stage.

Unique TCOM’s are now performed on college campuses nationwide. Bring the program to your campus. Learn more by visiting the LGBTQArchitect Archives and searching for “Monologues.”


Queer Alliance invites students, faculty, and staff every year to submit monologues that tell the story of how you came out to yourselves and others. Join the center’s E-Newsletter to stay informed.

Performance dates are announced on the Events Calendar.
