Today’s post is for every single ally that helped me gain the courage and continued the support for when I came out as a gay man. My supporters have been endless, but a lot of those who helped me significantly have been those not defined as LGBTQ and I find that incredibly inspiring. Their voices have been so incredibly powerful in my life and my gratitude for that will never stop. The important thing is that their voices continue to be heard and that those struggling know it’s okay to express who they are. Today is National Coming Out Day, and today I say thank you to every ally that has helped me along the way. Thank you for your love and comfort and for showing me it’s okay to be me!
