National Coming Out Day 2008

October 11th has been celebrated as National Coming Out Day since 1988.

To celebrate it, people come out to others as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. According to a post I read on the Gay Christian Network, it began in 1988 as a commemoration of a march on Washington the year before.

So just last night my best friend from college found me on Facebook and I came out to him. Though he responded well, I think that may be enough direct coming out for this year's celebration :).

But I did set my Facebook status to reveal my queerness.

Happy National Coming Out Day!
