Chronicling the stressful and often emotionally draining task of gays and lesbians coming out to friends and family, this touching series marks a high point for the year-old Logo channel. Reminiscent of sister network MTV’s True Life series, Coming Out Stories is an intimate look at incredibly personal moments in its subjects’ lives (like Chris Cabaldon, the mayor of West Sacramento, above, who decides to come out publicly). While reality TV can often be tawdry and shameless (that means you, Bravo’s Boy Meets Boy!), this series stands proud by showcasing strength and tolerance.
