Is it already October 11th? Sheesh, the year flies by. Well, anyway, that means it’s time again for National Coming Out Day!
I’m pretty swamped with work projects, though, so I’m going to cop out and link back to last year’s post, with a few quoted excerpts below:
Step 1: Coming Out to Myself
I started my coming out process (and it is a process, rather than one big step — and that process continues as long as you continue to meet new people) in 1991. […]
Step 2: Coming Out to My Parents
I came out to my parents in 1993, just before leaving the country. […]
Step 3: Coming Out to My Sister
I came out to my sister in a letter in 1996, just after I’d moved to California. […]
Step 4: Coming Out to My Extended Family
I came out to my extended relatives a little bit by accident, in 1998. […]
Step 5: Not Becoming Invisible
In 1997, I met the love of my life. He happens to be male, and he happens to be straight, and initially that was hard for me. […]
Step 6, 7, 8, …
And so it goes. Every time I meet new people, every time someone makes a gay joke, every time I hear someone ignore the possibility of bisexuality, there’s an opportunity to out myself. […]
Happy Coming Out Day!
