National Coming Out Day Status
- Its #NationalComingOutDay and just last week, I told my dad I’m gay. He just said to me “Okay Habibi, love you” I played out this scenario in my head for the past ten years. I hate myself a little for hiding it for so long but coming out is a journey of self-love and security.
- If you’re not out yet, you’re still valid. If you don’t know what your sexuality is, however, you’re still valid. If you’re out and dating the opposite sex, you’re still valid. You’re accurate, no matter what. we love you & accept you
- Today is probably as good a day as any to say that I no longer identify as bisexual! This year has helped me figure out what I’m a lesbian (although I prefer to say gay or queer)
- Overwhelmed by all the love, support and people reaching out, thank you all so much. “Ugly crying” at 11 am reading all your amazing comments was not how I intended to start the day.
- Thank you Nat Sciver and Katherine Brunt for sharing your story with me. This morning, on #NationalComingOutDay (a happy coincidence!), they are announcing their engagement to be married.
- Happy #NationalComingOutDay. It was friends, colleagues, and just everyday people being visible and loud that made me feel comfortable coming out. Hi, I’m Alan. I’m non-binary and pansexual. My pronouns are they/them.
- Today is #NationalComingOutDay. I’ve had to “come out” many times over — to friends, family, and strangers. It’s’s exhausting. It’d be nice if we stopped expecting others to disclose their desires or identities. Here’s to a queer world where we don’t have to “come out” at all!
