In case you hadn't heard, Lambda is driving up to Washington D.C. on October 9 for the National Equality March!
Yup, a bunch of us are packing into some cars and braving the trip up to D.C. to march alongside our fellow Americans. I'm basically excited!
Anywho, I read this article about the March, and how its actually falling on the National Coming Out Day. Won't it be exciting to have so many people 'coming out' to support equality and march together? The focus of the article was, however, on those people not marching on Oct. 11. Instead, it talked about all of the millions more LGBT people who would not be able to attend, but 'coming out' and supporting in their own individual way. People will literally come out of the closet on this day, and people who are already "out" will come out to even more people who didn't already know. It's important to remember that everyone can make a difference, even if you can't make the drive to D.C.
The more the world gets to know us, the more they can see that we're a part of them-a part that deserves all the same rights too.
