National Coming Out Day….


Today, October 11th, is National Coming Out Day. We need to show our support for those who do chose to ‘come out’, but also to respect those who aren’t ready or wish to keep their sexual preferences private. 🙂

I wanted to post some links to some sites that will help, especially teenagers and their parents who are dealing with the decision of coming out.

The first link is to Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project. The second is to a forum for LGBTQ teenagers where they can meet and talk to others dealing with the same issues they are. The Trevor Project is one of the leading national organizations focusing on crisis intervention and suicide prevention among LGBTQ youth.

I didn’t do any writing over the weekend, no matter how well intentioned I was…lol. So it’s back to the grind. Not only my day job, but writing to catch up on what I should have gotten done this past weekend. 🙂

I hope you all had a great weekend, and have a good Monday as well.
