Today is National Coming Out Day!

Today is National Coming Out Day, which has been celebrated since 1988, on the first anniversary of the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. HRC has put together a lovely video that highlights the many celebrities who have come out over the last 25 years, including one I have characterized as the most memorable to me, Ellen Degeneres. It also includes a diverse list of celebrities who are now out of the closet such as George Takei, Jason Collins, Jason Lambert, Wanda Sykes, Chaz Bono and Ricky Martin.

To me, National Coming Out Day was the single-most defining event to turn the tide in favor of LGBT equality.
Most Americans now know at least one or more gays or lesbians, and we have become role models for everyone else.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
