I put up a new piece on my Medium account today in celebration of National Coming Out Day!
I wanted to talk a little bit about the struggle of coming out, and how it’s rarely the end of the hard work that comes with living in society as a queer individual. However, that should absolutely not deter you! The work is all worth it. Though your coming out journey may not go ideally, you will still emerge stronger and more aware of what you need as a queer person, and that in itself is a beautiful thing!
Just know that wherever you are right now, you are loved, you are important, and you are valid for how you are taking your coming out journey. No one journey is the same as any other, so don’t ever feel rushed to come out. Do it when it feels safe, and when you are ready to do so.
