The Free World Just Celebrated #NationalComingOutDay. Someday Queer India Will, Too

11:23 am 15 Oct, 2016


The western world celebrated National Coming Out Day (#NCOD) on October 11. The festivities seem to have snowballed in the real world and the virtual and here we are — smack dab in the middle of National Coming Out Week. If you know where to look, you’ll find the colors of the rainbow (and the lives of the rainbow people) splashed across the worldwide web. From regular people to celebrities to politicians, everyone had something to say, most of it nice. Here’s taking a look at just that!

 

It’s inspiring to see this kind of overwhelming support for a marginalized, and so often, wronged, community. It gives me hope that someday things might get better on this side of the world, too. And you know what they say about hope — it springs eternal. So here’s hoping!
