Happy Coming Out Day!
I wish I could be in D.C. for the National Equality March. Anyone who went: tell me your experiences! The Huffington Post also covered the march and has some great photos from it.
It's important to remember that Coming Out Day is a day not only for LGBTQ people, but for straight allies as well. "Coming out" does not necessarily mean admitting you are queer, although it's wonderful if you found the strength in you to come out in that way today, but also coming out against homophobia.
The Human Rights Campaign has great guides for anyone struggling with coming out. Or, if you're a straight ally who wants to help support your LGBTQ friends, you can check out GLAAD's ally resources.
