It's National Coming Out Day, Chicago. Whether you are queer and proud of it or a supporter of gay rights--it's a good day to celebrate.
Coming Out Day was started by the Human Rights Campaign to help LGBT people and their straight allies help raise awareness surrounding gay rights issues.
To show your support for equality, check out the Human Rights Campaign's Coming Out for Equality Facebook app.
