Lost Letters: Share Your Own Messages Of Love And Support To Those Coming Out

Over the last few months, we've seen a lot of amazing letters from parents and future parents to their children about their sexuality. Last week we were floored by this Dad's note to his closeted gay son.

We've all been touched by these letters, especially since not all of us were lucky enough to have such supportive families. So many of us didn't come out to hugs or get preemptive letters of support. In light of this, we've decided to launch the Lost Letters project.

We're asking you, our amazing community, to write your own letter of love and support to someone coming out, getting ready to, who's scared to, or is having a rough time. While we can't guarantee that they'll get the response they want, we can guarantee that we've got their back.

Together, we can be the family many of us need but won't or didn't get.

Here's how your can submit your own letter or note:

1) You can tweet your lost letter to us at @huffpostgay. Be sure to use the hashtag: #lostletters

2) You can email your letter to us at gayvoices@huffingtonpost.com

Below you can see a round up of some of the tweeted letters we've received so far.
