Today, October 11, is National Coming Out Day (NCOD) in much of the world (it’s October 12 in the UK). The first NCOD was held in 1988, the first anniversary of the second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It seemed appropriate to mention this as another gay rights march is scheduled for Washington, DC tomorrow (October 11 in the US).
I was at the 1987 March, but I was long out by the time NCOD began a year later. Nowadays, I don’t think there’s anyone who doesn’t know, apart from people who don’t know me at all, of course.
So here’s a video from the Australasia region to help celebrate National Coming Out Day.
