    In my private life, I start telling people when I was 18. but kept it private pretty much since then.

    In the Army, I have only told a select few that I trusted in each unit I have been with. When I was in Korea, we were at a bar in Uijeongbu, (Tomsville if any of you know that bar, then you got cool points), when one of my friends who was drunk said, "B*****, I love you, Man. I don't care that you are gay. you are my BROTHER. We need to find you a man". He was too drunk to realize that 1/2 our platoon was sitting around the table hearing every word he said. he said, "Oh, SHIT. I'm sorry, Battle. I didn't mean. oh, god." but it didn't matter. everyone started talking to be about it and asking me questions. and they didn't care. it felt really good to be able to have people know about me and still not worry about being judged.

    I still feel like this is a really dumb idea... the "national coming out day" not coming out in general.

    Many people have done it. It is basically a day of encouragement for those that are interested in doing it.

    and that idea is great, but what I saw at my school was just a bunch of gay people being very loud about their gayness and the obviously closeted people being heckled by their peers to come out.

    ‎"You must come out. Come out... to your parents...Come out to your relatives... come out to your friends...Come out to your neighbors... to your fellow workers... to the people who work where you eat and shop... come out only to the people you know, and who know you...For your sake. For their sake. For the sake of the youngsters..." --Harvey Milk
