Oct. 11 is National Coming Out Day


(WAND) - October 11 is National Coming Out Day.

This is the 30th annual day for the Human Rights Campaign.

HRC states online, "Coming out and living openly aren’t something you do once, or even for one year. It’s a journey that we make every single day of our lives. Every coming out experience is unique and must be navigated in the way most comfortable for the individual. Whether it's for the first time ever or the first time today, coming out can be an arduous journey. It is also a brave decision to live openly and authentically."

People are encouraged to share their stories about coming out or use the day as an opportunity to come out to loved ones if they so choose.
