    Today is National Coming Out Day!

    Let's give a round of applause to all our LGBT friends and loved ones, and recognize them for the amazing people they are. [​IMG] [​IMG]



    Did you know...

    Almost 90% of LGBT youth are harassed in some form at school.

    In 29 states, you can be fired for being gay or lesbian, and in 38 states for being transgender.

    Only 5 states recognize love, no matter what form it is in.

    More than 14,000 LGBT service members have been discharged for their sexual preference, despite Don't Ask, Don't Tell

    I love days like this. [​IMG] I'm not gay or lesbian myself, nor do I really know anyone who is, but it is one of those issues I strongly support. [​IMG]

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    I'm a BIG supporter of gay rights. Big. Who other people love does not offend me or lessen what I have.

    I wish peace to all people - no matter who you love or what god you choose to pray to....none of that matters to me - peace to all!
