National Coming Out Day is coming up (October 11) and I just want to remind everyone:
1) Please do not out anyone (even if you “think you are doing them a favor.” Trust me when I say you aren’t) and make sure you don’t accidentally do so.
2) It is okay to be in the closet. Please do not feel pressure to/obligated to come out because there so happens to be a Coming Out Day. (Do it for you if it’s what you want).
3) If you are a non-lgbt, please don’t come out as a joke. seriously, don’t.
4) don’t “come out as straight”, period. joking or
not. even if you have good intentions and are trying to be an ally/show solidarity since “lgbt people shouldn’t be the only ones who have to come out :)” like……i get what ur going for but…..just…..Do Not.
