National Coming Out Day

Today is the 25the anniversary of National Coming Out Day!
In case you're having trouble recalling how NCOD got started or what its purpose is, you can refresh your memory here.

Although I fully support the idea of NCOD, personally I've had very little need for the annual reminder. Ever since I 'came out' I've lived my life openly. My daily conversations with friends, neighbors, and colleagues contain references to my partner and our lives together.

But just for kicks, today I 'came out' to my office.  It went like this:
   ME:  Today is National Coming Out Day.  I'm gay.
   10 seconds of silence

Did you 'come out' to anyone today?
