Figuring out how to come out to anyone can feel like a heavy weight bearing down on one's mind. The good news is that with support lifting this weight can make you feel light as a feather afterward.

The even better news is that coming out is getting easier. This panel aims to discuss the current issues and how we can overcome the stigma of coming out to friends, fellow gamers, and as a professional in the industry.

Main topics include:

- An overview of each panelists experiences in coming out

- Current and future state of the industry towards LGBT members

- Benefits and potential risks in coming out

- Coming out to fellow gamers and friends

- Coming out as a professional in the industry

- LGBT opportunities to be involved and become a leader in the game industry

At the end we will conclude with a Q&A round with the panel audience.
