Yay, what a great day! National Coming Out Day is an internationally-observed civil awareness day for coming out and discussion about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues. It is observed on October 11 every year by members of the LGBT communities and their supporters (often referred to as "allies"). Wiki Facebook asked us to change our statuses to reflect ourselves. Mine says Ally, because I am too scared to tell my world I'm a gender confused gay.
