Today is National Coming Out Day. I'm here in the deep south, where anti-GLBTQA+ sentiments are some of the worst in the nation. Today, I know that few others on campus will even think about it.

Today I wear wear a rainbow bracelet, a headband, a pin, for those who are too afraid to do so for themselves. Today I wear all purple, for every slur that's been said, every word whispered behind someone's back, for every punch that's been thrown. Today I will keep the rainbow of lights in my room lit, for every person in the darkness.

Today I hold my head high, and say without words, "You are not alone."

High five! I hope you don't get too much flak and that a few people's hearts are warmed by your support.

I was about to wear my "Lebanese" shirt (yeah, it's a Glee reference), but then I was afraid of offending anyone who's Lebanese by appropriating their identity. Oh well. I'll just go to my LGBT lit class and enjoy whatever movie we end up watch to celebrate.
