HRC Wants You “Out”

The gay ranks are getting a little stale. Good thing it’s almost time for the HRC-sponsored National Coming Out Day. Whoopee…

In addition to urging closeted queers come out and tell their stories, HRC’s also celebrating the AIDS Quilt. Because, you know, AIDS and gays go together like cookies and cream. Says HRC’s Mark Shields:

Twenty years ago, as the AIDS crisis was raging, coming out was literally a matter of life and death. In many ways, we have come a very long way in a relatively short time, and yet that lesson still resonates deeply today. Coming out and living openly is the most important thing that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and straight-supportive Americans can do to build lasting understanding and equality.

As part of their coming out celebrations, HRC’s asking like-minded folk to submit YouTube videos for a “patchwork of stories”. Awww, ain’t that inspiring?

We’re inspired, at least, so we’d like to take a second to say: “We’re gay!” Boy, that’s like the biggest weight off our shoulders…
