Happy Coming Out Day!

Happy National Coming Out Day!

There is a meme right now on Facebook to post your “Coming Out Anthem” in honor of National Coming Out Day. This isn’t my current anthem, but it was one of the first songs that I heard when I was starting on my coming out path…

It’s important for those of us who are safe and able to be out and proud when we can, because we know it makes things better for those who come after us.

I am out in my writing, online, and in life, mostly because as a gender non-conforming person I might as well have a rainbow tattoed on my forehead.

But that’s a choice I can make because I’m independent and supported by my community.

Not all of us have that choice, which is why we celebrate days like this.

It reminds us that coming out is a privilege, one that we hope will be afforded to everyone, everywhere, one day.

    I dare say more than a few of us had that anthem. It’s a pretty great one.

    Thanks for coming out!

    Now if we can get more breastfeeding women to come out of the closet,
    bare their chests and blow away all the nay sayers!
