As UK National Coming Out Day (12 October UK)


It is highly encouraged for participants on this day to wear gay pride symbols, such as the pink triangle (gay men), the black triangle (gay females), the Greek letter lambda, and rainbows in jewelry and on clothing.

The day was founded by Dr. Robert Eichberg and Jean O'Leary in 1988, in celebration of the Second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights one year earlier, in which 500,000 people marched on Washington, DC, United States, for gay and lesbian equality. National Coming Out Day events are aimed at raising awareness of the LGBT community among the general populace in an effort to give a familiar face to the LGBT rights movement.

The Yanks celebrate on the 11th Oct.

Will you be coming out? You know who you are...?

Its the ramming down peoples throats like this that makes people hostile.
Straight people don't have to have 'straight pride' days, so why should gays?
There is already too much classification in society-if everyone just got on with it I'm sure there would be less problems.
Stop labeling yourselves - after all, we're all humans and small differences really don't matter!
