Chris Huth Edits Powerful Spots for National Coming Out Day

RPA and L.A.'s LGBT Center contrast support vs. isolation

In a two-part set of PSAs created by agency RPA (and edited by Union’s Chris Huth) for the Los Angeles LGBT Center, however, the myriad potential responses are boiled down to two options: Respond with love, or don’t. Obviously, one of those choices will set a family on a positive path, while the other will likely fuel isolation and heartbreak.

No two coming out experiences will ever be the same, just as no two people who come out are the same. For straight parents, especially those with little experience with the LGBTQ community, that open-ended aspect of a child identifying as gay, bisexual or transgender can make it feel like there’s no clear playbook for how to respond.
