National Coming Out Day: People share their emotional stories on Twitter


Share This Article:

Coming out to friends and family is a totally different experience for different people, and, as anyone gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual or transgender knows, it’s never something you do just once.

It’s National Coming Out Day and people have been sharing their stories about breaking the news to their friends and family.

Some were simple.

Others not so much…

There were some accidental coming outs…

Or being outed by others…

Or in unexpected situations…

Or just a bit awkward (and so 90s).

While this one is so millennial.

We love this story – including the use of props.

And how a royal wedding can be the perfect time.

But not everyone’s is plain sailing.

Some people used the day as it was meant – to actually come out.

But it’s never something you just do once.

There’s plenty of support on Twitter for people who aren’t ready yet though.

Happy National Coming Out Day everyone.
