Happy National Coming Out Day!!

Hello friends,  I want to wish you all a belated happy National Coming Out Day! 
I apologize for the delay, but it’s better late than never.

I don’t have a story where I personally shared my sexual orientation with anyone, because no one asks straight people when they “realized” they were straight.

I do remember one day in high school when a close friend I had known for years told me she was dating a girl at a different school. It wasn’t a big sit down conversation, it just came up in casual chatter. I probably just said, “that’s cool” because the idea that she felt she needed to tell me she was a lesbian never crossed my mind. I didn’t want to make a big deal out of her telling me because I didn’t think she had to. She could date a space alien and as long as it was a happy, consensual relationship I would support her.

Honestly, if you’re anti-LGBT then I don’t know what to say to you.
I respect your right to keep your views. I don’t respect when you use those views to be hateful.
If you want to hate gay marriage/people/colors/culture, fine, but until the LGBT community opens up therapy camps to homosexualize you, I’m not sure your concerns are valid.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great support filled weekend.
