Happy National Coming Out Day!

Today is the 29th (!) annual National Coming Out Day! Twenty-nine years ago today, half a million people marched on Washington for LGBT equality and Coming Out Day was born.A lot has changed since then. And a lot hasn't. But what has changed, and what will change, is due to the brave men, women, and genderqueer folks who come out because they expect more than a closet. As long as we live in a deeply heterocentrist culture that privileges straightness, coming out will remain a radical act—and anyone who comes out is an activist and an advocate, sheerly by virtue of their public existence, because straight/cis people who know out members of the queer community are exponentially more likely to be political allies.
