In honor of National Coming Out Day this Thursday, we’ve decided to run a series of blog posts from staff and volunteers about coming out.
For nearly 18 years, I lied and hid who I was because I was afraid of what people would think about me.
I eventually found the strength to say the words “I’m gay” to my friends, and eventually, my family. A couple years later, I’m now “professionally gay.” Who would’ve ever thought?
Happy National Coming Out Day, y’all. And thanks to everyone that’s been supportive along the way!
