Today is National Coming Out Day and.....

I'm a straight ally and today is National Coming Out Day. I'm coming out for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality because it's 2010....
  • and almost 90% of LGBT youth experience harassment in school, and too many lives have been lost
  • and you can still be fired from your job in 29 states for being lesbian, gay or bisexual and in 38 states for being transgender
  • and only five states plus DC recognize that love, not gender, is what matters in a marriage
  • and more than 14,000 servicemembers have been discharged from the military under the failed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law
  • and the government's failure to recognize LGBT families for immigration purposes tears bi-national couples and families apart.
