coming outToday is National Coming Out Day, an internationally-observed civil awareness day for coming out and discussion about gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) issues.

So many people are open about their sexuality now, that equal rights under the law is at the forefront of the modern LGBT movement.  Same-gender marriage is now recognized by several countries – Canada, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, and South Africa.  Civil unions and domestic partnerships are recognized in 17 countries, including the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, just to name a few.  Unions are also recognized in some parts of Mexico, Australia, and Venezuela, and other countries.

On yet another issue, America is behind the curve!
