National Coming Out Day
Today is National Coming Out Day! Everyone should take this opportunity to come out as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, or as a straight ally to someone!
We also take time to remember the string of recent suicides, in part because of gay-bullying: Tyler Clementi, Justin Aaberg, Seth Walsh, Asher Brown, Billy Lucas, and Zach Harrington. And these are just the ones that we’re reported on. Everyone…it may seem like its hard but once high school is over, you can choose the environment and group you want to be in. If you are being bullied, tell someone, call The Trevor Project. Being gay is not something to be ashamed of. You are a very important part of the gay community. We need you.
It seems like anti-gay sentiments are reaching a fever pitch, especially with the gruesome torturing of 3 gay men by 9 thugs here in New York City and the incredibly homophobic remarks of Carl Paladino.
What does Daddycatcher think of all of this? Change is happening. It may seem like the anti-gay rhetoric is winning, but think of all the supporters who are also making their voices heard. Equality is within reach…and this is just going to make all of us much stronger!!!
