Last year, I recounted the story of what I was doing on the original National Coming Out Day 20 years ago… so I’ve already blown that anecdote. You’ll have to go read it; it was good. October 11th, 1987 was a great day for me.
So officially, I quit lying about my sexual orientation over 20 years ago, and I’ve been an “out” proud, happy, gay person for more of my life than I was “in the closet.”
So happy National Coming Out Day! (
Hurry up and get out of the closet, all you self-loathing, lying bastards!).
Oh, sorry. Ahem. Welcome, newly openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people!
