Just a momentary pause from our posting hiatus to say Happy Coming Out Day!
Each year, October 11th marks National Coming Out Day, where folks around the country stand up and say I’m Gay/Lesbian/Queer/Questioning/Bisexual/Pansexual/Trans/Poly/Two spirit/AG/________ and I’m proud!
You fill in the blank with your preferred label.
With the recent spate of LGBT suicides, harassment and bullying, it’s even more important for those of us who are safe and able to be out and proud.
It’s well documented that the more people someone knows who are LGBTQ, the more accepting they are of queer folks.
So find someway to celebrate today, even as an ally who supports everyone regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression.
