Today is "National Coming Out Day." I'd just like to take this opportunity to express my admiration for anyone, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or other who "comes out" to family or friends today or any other day. This society is pretty rough on anyone who doesn't conform, and GLBT folks often get hit pretty hard with that. Sometimes, tragically, the hardest hits are by friends and family and not just the random Fred Phelpsish stranger. There is so much fear and hatred, that it can often seem safer to not ask and not tell.
So today, I would just like to say this: I wish for you what we all should have by birth: acceptance and love for who you are.
You deserve it, and who you sleep with or who you're attracted to does not negate that nor matter in the least.
