We talked about why people would want to come out as an atheist; how being closeted makes us internalize the stigma against atheists; whether atheists coming out increases the number of atheists in the world; similarities and differences between different kinds of coming out (as atheist, as LGBT, as kinky, as a sex worker, and more); different ways to come out as an atheist; using softer language to come out versus using more blunt language; coming out gradually versus coming out all at once; what I learned about families from researching Coming Out Atheist; some of the things that surprised me in researching the book; the story of the atheist on the roof; how racial, ethnic, gender, and other marginalized identities can affect coming out as an atheist; why feminist and LGBT communities often embrace progressive religion; and more. Enjoy!
