Stories about coming out

How did you make this work:
Three different stories about the act of Coming Out as a gay man. Each story is focused on a different emotion felt during the many 'coming outs' that we find ourselves facing every day. From those very first moments in which we begin to feel free to be ourselves, to finally being proud of who we are. The stories, in fact, aim to describe the different phases of acceptance of a gay person.
