Coming out is a big moment for anyone in the LGBTQ+ community, and Morgana Bailey made hers even bigger by coming out in a TED talk that eventually reached millions. Prompted by worrying statistic about how being inauthentic affects life expectancy, Bailey decided to take the plunge and finally be honest about her sexuality. In this episode of the Grow Big Always podcast, host Sam Lawrence talks with Bailey about what she’s learned since that experience, how being truthful has changed her life, and how people can support LGBTQ+ people in communities that are less than accepting.
