I have long been a supporter of LGBT Rights and Equality, and since October 11th is National Coming Out Day I wanted to encourage my readers to learn more about what they can do to help advance the civil rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender individuals.

October is also LGBT History Month, so you can read up on the achievements of the LGBT community’s most famous figures.

My congratulations and kudos goes to those who’ve announced who they are in a world still full of bigotry and misinformation, and my compassion and support goes to those who have not yet been able to do so. Stay strong.
