I have always supported the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community and I am proud to show my support today for National Coming Out Day. October 11th is the anniversary of the second March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, which took place in 1987 (two years after I graduated from high school). Over half a million people participated in six days of demonstrations and activities.
National Coming Out Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Show your support and participate in a local event, post a Facebook status, or wear a classic gay pride symbol on Thursday, October 11th.
