celebrate National Coming Out Day October 11, 2006 3:44 PM
Today is National Coming Out Day, and we celebrate by honoring openness, honesty and bravery.
The theme for the Coming Out Project is “Talk About It” – because talking about your support for equality, and how that affects your life and the people
around you is one of the most important ways you can make a difference.
Today, HRC, in partnership with PFLAG, is proud to launch our first ever resource specifically for friends and family –
“A Straight Guide to GLBT Americans.”
The guide is a resource that helps map some of the emotions straight people feel when someone first comes out to them, walks people through myths and facts
about GLBT Americans, and outlines ways straight people can demonstrate their support.
