TODAYIT’SNATIONAL COMING OUT DAY!Every year on National Coming Out Day, we celebrate coming out as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) or as an ally. On Oct. 11, 2018, we will mark the 30th anniversary of National Coming Out Day. Nearly 30 years ago, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, we first observed National Coming Out Day as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out.
Though it sometimes may seem difficult to come outit’s always easier to be true to yourself and your surroundings. Don’t you know there’s a whole community waiting for you?! Here is our Founder/Owners story: I grew up in the countryside in a small town on the Swedish west coast, called Dingle (outside of Uddevalla). During my early teens, I tried many sports and tried to fit into the macho culture. I noticed that I did not want to be as macho as any other guy. One day, when I was around 12 years I took a Bugg dance class (a Swedish popular partner dance) and that’s when I started to find myself. Since then, I’ve just let myself be who I am. I haven’t really needed to come out to my family, as they have always been accepting. We have other gay people in the family and for that, I am very grateful and happy.
FOR THOSE OF YOU, who have not had it as easy as me. Keep doing what makes you happy and be yourself, we the whole LGBTQ community are here to support you!
