It's also Canadian Thanksgiving Day. No parades but turkey, big dinner and all the trimmings.

Happy Coming Out!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's not a closet, it's a panic room.

It's National Coming Out day, and in case you didn't already know, I'm gay.

I never officially came out. I have always let people figure it out for themselves.

Perhaps having a "deal with it" attitude has worked pretty well for me.

I'm tired of coming out.

by Anonymousreply 2110/11/2013

I remember when people were chastised mercilessly if they wore blue jeans on coming out day.

by Anonymousreply 2210/11/2013

I'm proud to say I'm out to everyone; parents, extended family, everyone at work, neighbors and of course friends. This was not always the case, but coming out is a continual process.

Being out is the most important form of gay activism.

Why, R22?

by Anonymousreply 2410/11/2013

R16, Don Lemon came out years ago.

Coming Out Day had its origins in a gay rights campaign that stated that anyone wearing blue jeans on October 11 was announcing their homosexuality. It was meant to draw attention to the assertion that you could never really tell who might or might not be gay, but in high schools across the Midwest, it was an opportunity to beat the shit out of kids who were either ignorant(or supportive I suppose) of the campaign.

by Anonymousreply 2710/11/2013

Absolutely, R23 - it is indeed an evolving process AND the most important. Thanks to those brave gay activists of the past who paved the way for our current situation.

Too late now ... guess I'll have to wait until next year.

R12 Anderson Cooper is already out.

JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake... looking at you.

Oh please. Look at the FBI stats on hate crimes.

It's not the midwest that's the problem.

Hmmm. I am assuming this thread didn't get much attention because OP was preaching to the choir..

by Anonymousreply 3210/12/2013

I don't know about that r32. DL attracts introverts, and many of them seem to be cowardly closet cases.

by Anonymousreply 3310/12/2013

"Anderson Cooper is already out."

R30, your sense of humor, or lack thereof, and sarcasm detector are off.

by Anonymousreply 3410/12/2013

George Stephanopolous is not gay.

by Anonymousreply 3510/12/2013

Never heard of what R27 is going on about.

That's because it isn't true.
