Long time no post! Sorry about that by the way, it’s my senior year (which I’ve probably mentioned) and I realized it’s turning out to be a lot busier than I expected! So today is National Coming Out Day-a day to celebrate LGBTQQIAA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Ally, and Asexual) coming out of the closet. Many posts have been made to support all of our friends and family.
On top of it being LGBTQQIAA History Month (which just focuses on the different leaders that have been a part of its history), there have been many articles posted with this theme…
This article again posted in the Huffington Post is an article about a father, who was killed while walking across the country as a tribute to his dead son who was gay.
And then there’s this article about Josh Hutcherson basically putting it out there that sexuality is a fluid concept.
There are so many articles out there talking about different aspects of the LGBT community. Articles that are both good and bad, but I think that comes to show how aware people are becoming of this topic. Whether you’re okay with LGBT people or not, I want you think about what it is like to be in their shoes. How hard it is to come out of the closet and to live daily with the idea that some people (that could be your family) don’t even support you.
