National Coming Out Day: More Important Than Ever

When they shout, “lock her up,” they’re saying Hillary’s name, but mean us too.

Sure. We can ignore those haters still creeped out by the Michael Sam kiss. And we’ve come a long way since 1997 when “Yep, I’m Gay” landed Ellen DeGeneres on the cover of Time Magazine. But the fact that gay youth are up to 4x more likely to attempt suicide compared to their straight peers, mean we still have a long way to go.

Every time someone comes out, someone new learns we are, and have always been; your children, siblings, parents, relatives, teachers, neighbors, defenders, co-workers and their friends. The more people that know that, the less scary it will be for the poor kid who now would rather be bullied every day than risk being turned away from those they love most.

They need all the support they can get for reasons plastered against our current political landscape like never before.

It doesn’t have to be like this …

When it should be like this …

There’s this …

And there’s this …

Which leads to more of this …

But before any of that can happen, this is where it starts

If you’re not out to everyone, it’s time to change that. Do you have a friend who feels trapped in the closet? It’s especially time to help them too.

Every person that comes out sends a pivotal message to everyone still in the closet that they will not receive anywhere else: that you will get through this and can go on to live a happy, authentic life with infinite possibilities. Period. Even play in the NFL. Even get elected to Congress. Even get legally married. And even moderate a debate. Next stop: the White House.

  1. Yes, yes, yes…. except Hillary takes millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia, Qatar etc where they regularly execute gay people, and oppression of minorities is constitutional law and enshrined in their penal code, as it is all based on their divine decree within sharia law.

    I wish American lefties would realise that gay people who can’t vote for them matter very little to the Democrats, as demonstrated by actions versus platitudes, and even less to Hillary otherwise she would be more protective of all people…all gays everywhere, and of all children, of all religious minorities (like Christians in the middle east) and of all women. All of whom are oppressed by her benefactors.

    Trump may be a buffoon, but Hillary is hypocrite.

    #allgaylivesmatter even those who can’t vote for you.
