[Technicolor Musings] Today Is (Inter)National Coming Out Day

October 11 is National Coming Out Day today, and like most other special days commemorated in the US, we tend to celebrate it all around the world, especially when they sound pretty important.

Coming out isn't easy and a lot of people won't want to do it, but it's still quite important. A lot of peoples still question why they should come out at all. But coming out can be quite a relief since you stop living a double life. And you help inspire other people that being LGBT isn't the torturous nightmare it sometimes seems to be, especially when you're living in the closet with a family that won't support you.

But it's still a personal decision and it's never good to out other people. Give them time to really come to terms with things and decide for themselves when they're ready.

So today we celebrate all those who have come out and we reach out a hand to those who are scared to take that first step. We're here for you.
