Oct. 11 is National Coming Out Day, and I'm taking the opportunity to come out again. But this time I'm coming out as an advocate for comprehensive immigration reform that provides a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants -- at least 267,00 of whom are LGBT.
When I came out in college in the late 1980s, I thought I was a unicorn. Surely I was the only gay Asian-American person in the universe. Never in my wildest imagination would I have imagined that I'd be invited to a White House briefing about issues of interest to the queer Asian-American community.
