It’s National Coming Out Day — a day that different sexualities and social differences, such as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender, come together to celebrate the confidence and development of the LGBT community.
This day (October 11th) rejoices and brings people together, of all ages, genders, ethnicities and religions to appreciate the growth and increase of acceptance too.A lot of people that belong to the LGBT
A lot of people that belong to the LGBT Community, are very proud and full of pride. Through pride parades, social media support and literally, coming out, this day is important for everyone; this includes family, friends and supporters of the LGBT Community as it is when they feel the most confident to come out, as their true sexuality.
However, even though it is a time of awareness and a boost of self-confidence and security, it shouldn’t be a custom to society. Straight people do not have to gain the confidence or self esteem to ‘come out’ as such, as they have already been accepted. It seems compulsive in order for the LGBT community to state their sexual orientation in order to gain confidence and acceptance, but it doesn’t need to be that way.However, it is great that we celebrate coming out day full of such love and care, emphasising the strength and voice of the LGBT community. This also includes the issues regarding violence, abuse and homophobia they fight against everyday and how they overcome their struggles.

Remember, that if you are feeling alone or feel like you have no where or no one to turn to, the LGBT are one of the most supportive groups of people in the world! They are accepting, friendly and just want to express themselves without any judgement or abuse. Also, it is important to remember that it is not an obligation to come out on coming out day, or at all! Society has made the LGBT Community feel like they have to in order to be accepted, however go against this and be you!
Don’t let society control you and your actions; You do YOU! When you feel comfortable, when you feel like the time is right, that is when you will feel happy and relieved, as if a weight as been lifted from your shoulders.
Have an amazing coming out day, either supporting friends or family or gaining the confidence to express yourself freely. You are loved, you are wanted and you are accepted!
