For whom do you come out of the closet? For yourself? Or for the people around you, really? Different queers question the unwritten rules surrounding their coming-out.
Who decided that coming out of the closet is a rite of passage for non-heterosexual people? Why don’t heteros have to do it? Director Esmée van Loon looks for an answer to the question for whom we actually come out. Do we do it for ourselves or for the people around us? And who made up this closet, anyway? Youngsters candidly talk about their coming-out, and why this is still so hard.
