Come out, come out!

Over and over again, studies show that the best way to advocate for LGBT rights is simply to be ourselves: to come out, so that people around us have a face and a person to think of, when they hear the word "gay". I found it very freeing to finally come out and be honest and authentic about who I am.

Of course, I'm fortunate to live in a big city in a liberal state, working for a very gay-positive employer, and I understand that coming out isn't safe for everyone. But it's safer than it ever has been.

If you haven't yet..... come out into the light!
