National Coming Out Day

88 posts in this topic

Never heard of this before...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Coming_Out_Day

National Coming Out Day is observed on October 11 by members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities and their allies. It is highly encouraged for participants in this movement to wear red to signify to the world their desire for everyone to know who they are and what they believe in.

The day commemorates October 11, 1987, when 500,000 people marched on Washington, USA, for gay and lesbian equality. National Coming Out Day events are aimed at raising awareness of the LGBT community among the general populace in an effort to give a familiar face to the LGBT rights movement.

In the United States, the Human Rights Campaign manages the event under the National Coming Out Project offering resources to LGBT couples, parents and their children as well as straight friends and relatives to promote awareness of LGBT families living honest and open lives.

Candace Gingrich became the spokesperson for the day in April 1995.

Despite its name, National Coming Out Day is observed worldwide.

Not that I would have declared it a national event, I can understand why people feel this is so important. I for one never want to feel as disgusted with lying about my entire life to everyone I love, ever again.

I hate that I have to do it at work.

Still don't think we need a day though :rolleyes:

haha. No, really, last night I saw this thread and was going to comment "Aww damn, a holiday passed and I didn't get to skip any classes because of it." Then I figured someone would say something, so I left the thread. :P

I think it's silly to everyone who is already out, yet fairly important to those who aren't.

Werd.

Not sure why straight guys are even commenting on this, it has nothing to do with them. Shut your traps, breeders. :D

Heh I wwas talking about this with one of my bros last night over hookah...our chapter definitely has a few gay guys, but they're really cool so it doesn't matter. The ones who piss us off though are the two so thoroughly entrenched in the closet...and homophobic. Not cool.

I can see why its important to (gay) people. (I hate the use of that word....gay ! thats not what it means.) I can see its importance however, it must be one of the hardest steps to make. An example on my behalf is........my father found out (from me) I was having a baby.............less than a month before she was born. We were'nt married and I didnt want to get married and I didnt want to hear about it, or get into the discussion. The hurt look in my fathers eyes when he found out I kept this from him is unforgetable. I realize this is not the same look (gay) people would usually get but Im just saying I know about things that are hard to discuss or hidden from the parents. My smoking was always hiddin too, not that anyone was fooled, I just prefered to keep it out of any conversations and out of site........in the closet so to speak.

I think most of you would find everyone already knows and also doesnt care to get into the conversation.

However, all that said

Got pussy ?....... 8)

i came out of the closet today.  But then I went back inside.  ?

Those with walk-in closets come out of the closet on a daily basis. :lol:

Razor, I'm with you, I don't like the use of that word either. "Gay" as read in stories in grammar school meant happy. How the word got derailed into meaning homosexuality is beyond me.
