Guess what tomorrow is?

National Coming Out Day

If you feel safe doing so, please consider coming out of that horrible stuffy closet. Visibility is hands down the best weapon we have in combating ignorance and fear. It is much easier to hate the concept of an evil gay boogeyman than it is to hate a living breathing person who is actually no different than anyone else. And besides, wouldn't you just love being those Religious Right homophobic heathens' worst nightmare? Well when you are out, loud, and proud you are just that. Those sanctimonious frauds want nothing more than to keep you hidden, dehumanized, and as miserable as possible.

And if it is not the right time for you to do this, no worries, we will love you no matter what. Your safety is more important than anything else. One day the time will be just right and when it is, we will be waiting for you with arms wide open.
