The days of hiding in the shadows are largely over for members of the LGBTQ community.  Or are they?

Society's attitudes toward people who are not strictly heterosexual have changed, but over a long time, and with a lot of pressure from a lot of people. 

And they all have stories to tell, stories being collected by the Coming Out Project.  Gina DuQuenne is the head of Southern Oregon Pride. Graham Sheldon is the founder of the Coming Out Project. They describe the workings of this crowd-sourced oral history event.
