Today is National Coming Out Day! Let us all remember the importance of being proud of who we are! Even though some people don’t necessarily have to “come out” anymore because times have been changing, for a lot of people around the world being LGBTQIA is still something society feels they should feel ashamed of or it is even life threatening. For those of us who live out and proud, let’s support whoever is going through difficulties in life for being LGBTQIA and try to give the example that it can be a happy and dignified life! Love always wins!
To celebrate National Coming Out Day, there’s a new character for the Out&About series. This is Riley, a bisexual person and agender. Riley prefers if you use the pronoun “they” when you refer to them, instead of “he” or “she”, because they don’t identify either as man nor a woman. In fact, Riley’s genderqueerness does not fit in the binary gender system. Besides that, they are a human being going through life with difficulties, challenges and joyful moments, just like you!
