Yes, National Coming Out Day was “officially” yesterday, but these are worth following up with:
- It’s the little things. Great new posts by Gerty-Z on how helpful straight allies can be, and Zwitteronique on the everyday bother of being out.
- Rest in peace. Queer rights pioneer (and astronomer) Frank Kameny died yesterday, at age 86.
- The truth shall make you free. John Smid, the former executive director of one of the oldest “ex-gay” quackery outfits in the US, admits that sexual orientation—including his own—isn’t changed by therapy.
- And ANOTHER thing. (Added 0935h.) A matter-of-fact listing of some ways in which gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered folks aren’t full and equal citizens.
