A word from the creator:
"I was at work not doing actual work and reflecting on the importance of representation and about being in the closet. Seeing women who looked like me speaking about their sexuality was so key for me in order to feel comfortable coming out. But even after being affirmed by these other women I still was hesitant to own my sexuality because of how I thought people perceived me and my sexual history. So the idea for a coming out closet where I could face these perceptions came to me as I was not working at work. I then messaged my partner Alli and my friends Even and Cullen. They all thought it was a good idea so now we are here."
