Hey! So, Coming Out Day is coming up soon (Oct. 11) and I just want to post a very stern reminder to NOT out anyone without their explicit permission.
Do NOT out anyone.
this is also a less important point, but still worth noting: DO NOT “come out” as an ally. don’t you dare.
Also - don’t feel pressured to come out. You don’t have an obligation to put yourself in an unsafe situation for any reason.
For my school’s LGBT-friendly mass, I have been asked to play some piano pieces. I chose four movements from Tchaikovsky’s “Album for the Children.” One because they are beautiful and reflective of the mood. Two because Tchikovsky is my dead gay soulmate. I am way more excited than I probably should be.
