    I used to always put together huge programs fro this when I was in college. I feel saddened that it's lost its spunk now that I'm out.

    We are hosting a bid to-do today over at our student union. I am going down there to lend my support and voice to all.

    My partner missed his cue, he came out last week... I told him this a.m. he should call other people (random people) and tell them as well, just to celebrate the day.

    Strangely he didn't agree with that idea. :rolleyes:

    hehe, another step :p not all the way yet

    1. good friends... check, and now we're even closer
    2. family close to me in age (thanks facebook for making it easy!) (brother, sister, cousins)... check(today!), and now they love me even more
    3. family a generation older than me that i respect and love(mom, few aunts and uncles)... soon hopefully ;) i want this torture over by christmas!
    4. family i couldn't give a rats ass about(dad, certain uncles)... not yet, and probably never will... not worried about their approval anymore, they're almost dead to me, its just not worth the headache.
    5. Grandma ... I'll probably never tell her directly. But i do love her so much, its just that she's so sick already, i don't want to do anything to stress her out, either out of concern for me, or hate for me, whichever she chooses if i tell her.

    one more step to go! wish me luck :)

    ...I have soooo been there. But instead of telling her, I just started dating her doctor. I never officially 'came out' to her, but I never hid anything. Her doctor (Matt) and I had a relationship for well over a year... And it was very noticed.

    National Coming Out Day is pretty lame.

    I was walking through Sproul and some homo came up asking me to support gay rights. I said sure and he wanted to pin one of those rainbow ribbons on me.

    I said hell no, and walked off and he started giving me shit...jesus, just cause I'm gay doesn't mean I need to wear it on my sleeve and show it to everyone like you queers. :riaa:

    Oh please Missy....of course you don't need to wear it on your sleeve. As soon as you open your mouth your friggin Prada flies out like projectile vomit.

    Too funny! :mamoru:

    I'm out to my family, everyone at work, and to all of my friends. I come out to new people on a case-by-case basis, and when the subject comes up.

    Most people assume I'm straight though, and are shocked when I tell them. :dunno:
