Today is "National Coming Out Day"!

National Coming Out Day



The History of Coming Out

We are here! We are queer! Get used to it!

OH...and WE VOTE!

The lives of the LGBT community are as important as any other group of people, but there are those who see us as an easy target; for the most part, they are correct. Too many look the other way in regards to homophobia, but especially when it comes to heterosexism (heterosexual privilege)!

Currently there are 28 states which allow for LEGAL...let me say that again...LEGAL discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, meaning one can be fired for simply BEING GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL, or TRANSGENDER. In some states, it is LEGAL to discriminate against the Queer community by refusing them housing or removing them from housing. A few states are currently making it difficult to register to marry, then there is the adoption issues.

Marriage equality was not the end of our struggles.





Come out, come out, wherever you are!!! (This includes allies!!!!)

October is also Gay History Month. Do you know any gay history?
