Welcome to The Queerty Query, where we raise questions and ask you, the readers, to weigh in. Sometimes the questions will be funny, sometimes they’ll be serious—it all depends what the chatter around the water cooler is.
Have a question you’d like to see become the Queerty Query? Email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today is National Coming Out Day, when LGBT people are encouraged to step out of the closet and share their true, essential selves with the world.
If you’re a Queerty reader, chances are you’re out to someone—even if it’s just yourself. So rather than prattle on, we’re just going to ask point blank: Who are you not out to and why?
We’re not throwing shade—each coming out carries its own unique set of baggage, whether it’s your parents, a co-worker or the guy at the deli that’s always trying to set you up with his cousin.
