Happy Friday! It’s a three day weekend, and I do mean a three “Day” weekend: National Coming Out Day, the International Day of the Girl Child, and Columbus Day (or, as those of us who don’t like celebrating horrible people call it, Indigenous People’s Day). Let’s chat about those things.
National Coming Out Day
Bridie‘s got this mostly covered in her excellent post today about visibility. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t point you toward this kickass interview on coming out that Dominique did with Politini and Sarah McBride, a trans advocate and my fellow AU alumna*.
Congratulations to all those who have shared their identities with friends, family, and the public this year, and so much love and solidarity to those who still struggle to do so (these two categories, of course, are not mutually exclusive). And a personal thank you to the friends who’ve come out to me this year and throughout our lives–I’m grateful for the opportunity to know you more fully.
