In a way it’s too bad that we still have to make a deal out of coming out of the closet even with all the advances that have been made in both the LGBTQ community and life in general. But when we still have active oppression on the part of government entities and sex-obsessed busy-bodies who are railing about retribution based on fables and superstition (all the while some of the most ardent opponents of gay rights are paying off their rent-boys), attention must be paid to those who are still dealing with both their true nature and their place in our society.
I hope for the time when National Coming Out Day is as big a deal as National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. That would be something to celebrate.
For the record, my coming out day was over 40 years ago, so you kids have fun.
