You may have noticed there was no post for Coming Out Day.  This was intentional - i do not, very much, like the idea of a day which may create a ton of pressure, or a false sense of security, for people who may not be in a safe place to Come Out in.  i also feel that, whilst queer solidarity is a great thing, the push on LGBTQI?! folk to make their private lives public as a matter of the public good can be extremely unfair, and sometimes just as oppressive as not being able to be open about their identities at all.

For those who enjoy Coming Out Day as a celebration and a concept, hooray, i am happy for them.  i don't personally celebrate it, though.

Just in case you were wondering!
