Coming Out Scarlet – Atheists Unite.

I NEED YOUR ATHEIST COMING OUT STORIES!  In approximately 500 words, please talk about coming out as an atheist and also try include encouragement for others to come out.  Let people know WHY coming out as a non-believer is important and how it has benefited your life.  I’d like to try to keep these essays more on the positive side for the sake of encouraging others.  Even if you had a hard coming out  with unsupportive family or friends, tell us how that experience solidifies who you are today.  Why the positive outweighed the negative.  Even if you are only partially out amongst friends/family but are fighting for the secular movement in other ways, please think about sharing your story. (That is where I am currently.)

I feel we are at a time in history where it is more important than ever to speak up as non-believers.  Religious belief is a large part of what is holding back our women’s and queer rights and it is the root of much violence in our world.  From female castration to honor killings to flying planes into buildings.

I am not sure if this will work in enough time for Reason Rally but I am going to try.  If I have at least 6 entries I will go through and make something small for the rally, and then expand on it later.

This zine needs to be put together before March 24th (Reason Rally).  Thus the stories will need to be emailed to me by March 17th.

Please email your essay to clickclackdistro@gmail.com

If you don’t want to publish your real name, feel free to use a pseudonym or ask me to put you down as anon.  

For those finding this through the atheist channels who may not know what a zine is… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zine

You will not be compensated if your piece is selected, except for a copy of the completed zine.  I will sell copies (not for profit) in my zine distro: http://www.clickclackdistro.com  I may also break my zine rules, and make a PDF for free distribution on the internet. 

Most copies will be given away to folks I meet at Reason Rally if this happens in time.

Think Free,

Nicole
