PHOTOS: Anonymous Users On ‘Whisper’ Reveal Their Coming Out Secrets
Whisper is an app that’s sort of a cross between SnapChat and PostSecret. Anonymous users make meme-styled posts out of photos with whatever secret is eating at them. Via the website, Whisper.Sh, users can search and browse various secrets or “whispers.” Whisper provides an outlet for stuff that’s weighing on users’ minds, but more than that, it provides a look into the invisible thoughts of our culture.
In this gallery, we’ve chosen some of the best Whispers about coming out. If you’re in the closet, hopefully this will encourage you to come out (if it’s safe to), or at least let you know that others are also trying to find the courage. If you’re out of the closet, maybe it’ll remind you to support friends of yours who might be newly-out. And if neither applies to you, this might be an extra dose of encouragement to be a good ally and provide encouragement to friends who need it.
