On Coming Out Day, I want to salute every out DUer


That's a courage I can't imagine, and the liberation must be a joy I can't comprehend. You've earned it.

Those of you who can't be out yet: we love you, and we know you're there, and we hope you can be in a safer place soon.

I'm straight, but my understanding of sex as being about authenticity and honesty came from all my LGBTQ friends. You have added that to our idea of what sex requires, and I cannot thank you enough for it.

3. Thank you, Recursion. That's a wonderful post from a beautiful soul!

I came out to my family 50 years ago, right after being discharged from the US Army. I was greeted by a big yawn...they had figured it out long since, they didn't care, and they loved me anyway.

9. Thank you, Recursion...

That was a wonderfully thoughtful post. I salute and appreciate your understanding. Coming out was not a smooth ride for me and involved a lot of fear, tears and anguish. Thank you again for your appreciation of our struggle

10. Thanks!

Recursion, thanks for your post.

Conversion / reparative therapy are harmful and cause depression and suicides, and no one ever changes - despite their marketing BS.

You are what you are, you like what you like, and that's that.

There may well be a day when coming out isn't a thing, but frankly I think it is a long time coming.
