October 11th is National Coming Out Day. It is a day for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies to celebrate coming out and also to try to encourage those who haven’t not yet come out, to make their voices heard.
And some of the voices we hear far and wide are those of celebrities, the icons who encourage, inspire and whom many embrace for their honesty abut their lives. This is the 24th annual National Coming Out Day, and to celebrate we’ve compiled ten gay and lesbian celebrity parents who have come out, several of them did so for their children, to send a message about being true to themselves.
Check out these ten openly gay and lesbian star parents and how and why they came out right here:nggallery id=’119088′
