National Coming Out Day
I'm posting the following press release that I received from the Human Rights Campaign. I believe it's very- no-, extremely important to treat our fellow human beings with kindness and respect no matter what their sexual orientation.
The world will be a better place when we don't judge others and when everyone is free to be who they truly are.
As the country looks to celebrate National Coming Out Day on October 11, a day set aside every year to honor gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and straight Americans living openly and supporting equality, the Human Rights Campaign is proud to announce the participation of Grammy Award winning artist and international singer, P!nk.
“P!nk is one of millions of straight Americans who supports fairness and honesty for everyone – GLBT or straight,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “This project will show the faces of countless Americans who support openness over painful silence and isolation. Young people who are afraid to come out will see these pictures and faces and know that they are not alone.”

Talk About It...I love creative people, those who are different and maybe a little off kilter. Those who aren't part of the "in" crowd whatever that may be. I want to encourage you to be bold and brave and live true to who you are. Distressedjeans loves you all!
