Just wanted to say...
Happy Coming Out Day!
I'm glad we have a positive connotation attached to today to counter the ever-awful Columbus Day.
It's important to understand that today is not just a day to encourage being "out and proud," but also a day when folks across the country can "come out" in support of queer-identified, transgender, and gender nonconforming peoples. I've seen plenty of my friends dedicate their Facebook statuses and Tweets to today, which is a good way to show your support. But if you do want to use today to come out or stand up and show your pride, go for it. I'm queer-identified, and proud of it!
The Human Rights Campaign also has some good resources on what you can do today. And if you are planning on coming out today, there are some guides on the HRC site to help you. Enjoy the day, all!
