LGBTQ: National Coming-Out Day



Hey, everybody, it's National Coming-Out Day! Time to celebrate your queerness. We'd like to link to celebrating queer and straight bloggers out there whether you're on our blogroll or not, so join us as we sashay down the street, y'all.

  • Benny, over at Benny's World, has a cool post on the origin and meaning of the Rainbow Flag, go check it out!

  • Over at Penguin Central, BadTux reminds us that the face of hate is not always easily recognizable, that a huge effort is underway in California to repeal the right to marriage for the LGBTQ community, and that you can, and should, grow a pair and tell the bigots to fuck themselves.

  • Alan, over at Blogging Out Loud, makes us pee our pants laughing, as usual, with his commemorative post. Warning: Keep fresh, dry pantalones handy.

  • VJack, over at Atheist Revolution, wishes our whole community a happy National Coming-Out Day, thanks, VJack!

  • Steven, over at Heterosexually Challenged, acknowledges the day, reminds us it's the tenth anniversary of Matthew Shepard's death (gads, it feels like it only happened yesterday), and celebrates with football;

  • The Bilerico Project is celebrating Queer History Month with lots of posts from lots of posters. Checkidout;

  • Over at Pam's House Blend (note new URL), a couple of posters talk about coming out and coming out. Please to read;

  • Kathy, over at If I Ran the Zoo, has a nice reminder for all the straight allies — equality for LGBTQ people will only happen if you join us in the struggle;

  • A funny story about figuring out your sexuality, from Mockingbird's Medley;

  • caliberal has a post about marriage equality up on My Left Wing;

  • Nelson has his usual biting posts on the homophobes among us, over at NGblog;

Did we miss anybody? Give us a shriek and we'll fix the error post-haste.

Happy Coming-Out Day! If you're not out yet, consider doing it now. Yeah, it'll hurt and people might say shitty things, but you might find support where you least expect it.

Update: Missing link to Badtux' post fixed.

Come out, come out wherever you are! Although Coming Out is painful for a lot of folks, one day it won't be a big deal. We're getting there, but a journey of a thousand miles and all that, you know?

Glad I throw a little humor in the mix for ya! ;)

regarding california and prop 8. our neighbors put up a yes on 8 sign extremely close to our yard boundary. mr. sgtg nicely asked that they please move it. mr. neighbor said 'sure, i told my mother this wouldn't fly'. mr. neighbor's elderly mother lives with them. sheesh, i just can't believe that this ridiculous prop even got on the ballot, let alone all these ridiculous yes on 8 signs.

Geeze, BadTux, how embarrassing. Sorry 'bout that.

Hey, Alan, your blog makes the difference between a spittle-flecked rant and a wine-flecked expounding, yaknow?

Hey, terrorist nun, thanks for the Reggie pix and glad to hear you and Mr. sgtg are keeping the fires of bigotry squashed.
