Today is National Coming Out Day! So be sure to tell your local congressperson or senator they don't have to pass those nasty laws anymore - today they should just embrace who they are! (Or embrace the man in the stall next to them....)
Not really coincidentally, today also marks the 20th anniversary of the 500,000 person march on Washington for gay rights and to demand government action towards the AIDS crisis.
We can cry all we want to (and we should) but it's pretty amazing to look back at how far we've come as a society in just 20 years.
