By my watch, it will be National Coming Out Day in 20 minutes. For those of you who don't know what that is, go HERE: http://www.hrc.org/issues/coming_out.asp
You don't have to be GLBT to come out! I am straight, but I still support equal rights for all genders and orientations. If you have a facebook, then you've probably seen a lot of status updates involving Coming Out Day. If this is something you believe in, then let people know about it. Let's show our support by coming out tomorrow! :)
One thing the facebook campaign has made me realize is just how ignorant I am of my friends' status. I was scrolling down my home page, thinking to myself, "Wow, I didn't know so-and-so was gay/bi/transgender. I guess I should pay more attention." Admittedly, I knew a lot of those people back in middle or high school, and many of them didn't know what they were yet. However, I think it's unspeakably cool that I have such diverse friends, and I plan on standing with them tomorrow (which is now only a few minutes away!).
Solidarity! Happy Coming Out Day, everyone!
