National Coming Out Day, October 11th

October 11th is National Coming Out Day. This day commemorates the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights on October 11, 1987. On that day a half a million people brought their bodies and voices to the cause of equal rights.

Now we set aside this day to recognize and celebrate coming out as LGBT. Sometimes we are just waiting for the right opportunity to start the conversation – National Coming Out Day can be that right time. Perhaps I will wear my “SOME KIDS R GAY” t-shirt when I pick-up my daughter?

Here is a link to information about and resources for National Coming Out Day.
