National Coming Out Day 2015: 10 inspiring tweets

2015-10-11
It's National Coming Out Day today, prompting a hashtag full of great stories, inspiring words and - obviously - the occasional troll. Those who have been out and proud for years and those who have yet to take that big step will be thinking today about their own experiences with telling their nearest and dearest about who they really are. fLAG There are many people who don't think coming out should be noteworthy anymore, especially when it's a public figure. But coming out is still an emotionally turbulent time for anyone, and celebrities doing it set a great example of bravery and, hopefully, the reaction shows love and acceptance. https://twitter.com/J_Manasa/status/653136220202135552 https://twitter.com/Hotdesigner/status/653135673965346816 After all, life for LGBT+s may have gradually improved over recent years, but there is still a lot of work to do. https://twitter.com/Tara_Hewitt/status/653137217372692480 https://twitter.com/Francoooombs/status/653136787456532480 But for now, on National Coming Out Day, take a moment to take in people's uplifting, inspiring and occasionally funny stories. https://twitter.com/Jakelees69/status/653133307060858881 https://twitter.com/Danielf90/status/653135644877828096 https://twitter.com/PatrickStrud/status/653137007766601728 That said, it's still not that smooth a journey for everyone. https://twitter.com/lordslutdrop/status/653138104895827968 So just be true to yourself, take things at a pace you're comfortable with, and remember your Number One priority is you. https://twitter.com/jakeftmagic/status/653130236033433600 https://twitter.com/OakleyftBen/status/653080653475524608
