Summary/Abstract: The subject of this article is an analysis of the coming out of the priest Krzysztof Charamsa as well as media response to this event. The first part of this article presents communication strategies employed by the cleric both in his statements and in global dimension – an overall media image that he created. The scope of the analysis covers the functioning of the category of revealing own gender identity, exciting nature of the event, as well as the usefulness of multifarious linguistic means in the process of describing reality. The second part of the article is devoted to the diversity of comments in media (press and the Internet). Different examples show dichotomous (positive or negative) evaluation of Charamsa’s act, however, whichever point of view is followed, they all confirm self-promotional nature of this coming out.
