For #NationalComingOutDay I want to remind everyone that it's okay to come out multiple times. You're allowed to explore your identity.

hi friends: if someone comes out to you, treat them with respect & confidentiality. indifference & flippancy hurts. #NationalComingOutDay

I'm bisexual. Today on #nationalcomingoutday, I wanna say that you're still bisexual even if you like cis men the least of all the genders.

If you are already out on National Coming Out Day, remember you might be the person who gives someone in the closet strength and courage.

To All The Students Coming Out,
You're far braver than you know and more courageous than you should have to be. #NationalComingOutDay

Coming out is a bit like a fart: if you have to force it, it might be shit. Do it in your own time, nobody else's #NationalComingOutDay

It's #NationalComingOutDay! Come out as gay. Come out as trans. Come out as supporting equality. We need your voices now.

Coming out helped me find true strength as the unique man and human I was meant to be. Come out! Love is all!

coming out is great, but do it on YOUR terms. #NationalComingOutDay is meant to encourage discussion, not put pressure on those not ready <3

So on this day, if it is safe for you to do so, I encourage you to come out and be visible! Happy National Coming Out Day!
