Thank You For Coming Out
Thank You For Coming Out (TYFCO) strives to inspire authenticity and belonging by uplifting and centering LGBTQIA+ stories and identities.
Through empowering LGBTQIA+ people and our allies, we are building a strong and interconnected community where every person knows they are an integral part of creating a just world.
We’re not just a show, we’re a community.
Upcoming Event - 6/27, 930pm
Fundraiser for New Alternatives
Thank You For Coming Out is teaming up with Shitzprobe to put on the show of the summer!
Mashing up both shows, an all-queer cast of musical improvisers will bring to life, through a made-up musical, the coming out story of our guest monologists. Each act will support one actor who has never improvised before! Featuring a fundraising raffle, afterparty with guests, and more!

Through the power of storytelling, humor, and their expertise, Dubbs connects with and educates their audiences to inspire change for a more equitable world.
Featuring unique coming out stories and a blend of humor, heartache, worry, and wonder, each episode is an inviting look into a diverse narratives of identity, family, community, and whatever else organically appears.
Craft Your Truth
Craft Your Truth encourages LGBTQ young adults to discover the singular, golden thread of their unique story and, with the help of a professional performing artist, spin it into a form of creative expression that can inspire and connect them to the larger fabric of their community.
From a One-Time Show to So Much More
We’re All Connected!
Thank You For Coming Out grew from the need for a more diverse show in the New York City improv comedy scene dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ+ coming out stories and journeys.
Now over six years running, TYFCO has expanded to be a vast network of improvisers, performers, artists, and allies, a podcast platform, and a consultancy service that provides workshop and training services geared to creating a more equitable and just world.
