National Coming Out Day

Today is October 11th which is “National Coming Day”.
According to nationalcalenderday.com, “Each year on October 11th, National Coming Out Day encourages civil awareness recognizing and supporting those in the LGBTQ community.”
 

“The day celebrates individuals who publicly identify as bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender – coming out regarding their sexual orientation and/or gender identity being akin to a cultural rite of passage for LGBT people.”

“One in two Americans knows someone who is gay or lesbian. The ratio applied to transgendered Americans is one in ten.”

“The day is dedicated to raises awareness of the civil rights of the LGBTQ community. Through education and support, and sharing their stories, it is hoped they may be more able to live openly and safely.”
