I wonder what it means for someone to come out of the closet as gay after 90  years of hiding that fact?

Wow guys, I free-associated a little too much on the topic of glitter ashes, and your comments, before I looked it up.  Somehow my instant thought was, those were cremated remains of gay people, mixed with glitter.  I am so glad that's not what it was. 

However, seeing what the glitter ashes really are, I'm relieved they are just weird rather than profoundly disturbing.

Carl - Yes, sometimes it seems true that the love that dare not speak its name has become the love that won't shut up.

Just added a coming out story, I think a happy one.

No surprise there, Ruth, about Jeff Sessions.  Such a deplorable man.  

A few weeks ago, something prompted me to watch a "coming out" video on YouTube (of which there are many.)  That led me to spending the past few weeks perusing the coming out stories of many others.  Some are sad, many have happy endings, some are funny, and some will make your heart ache with pain and bring you to tears.  

It's that last category which is riddled of stories involving hate speech, bullying, disownment, suicide attempts, being told you are less than human, and that your existence doesn't matter.

To have someone like Jeff Sessions as head of the bully pulpit of justice and equality is such an anathema to the concept humanity itself.  His presence does real and true damage to individuals who are now facing the same horrid situations as those in so many coming out videos.

Thanks for the news about Gambia, Daniel. On the home front things reversed fast.

A few weeks ago: President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community.”

Now under Jeff Sessions,

The DOJ announced last week they will no longer challenge the infamous “bathroom bills” blocking transgender students from using the facilities that align with their gender identity.

Slap upside the head for the LGBT community!
