National Coming Out Day

Today is National Coming Out Day, many people probably don't know what this day is, or what it means.

This evening, I went to the 30th Annual PFLAG NYC Dinner. PFLAG is an incredible organization. The organization was founded in 1973 and was founded by parents and friends of LGBT persons who stood up to support their loved ones. Such a great organization, such a great dinner. Mayor Bloomberg spoke and a whole host of others, moving speeches but I think the one that hit me was, the GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Brian Burke talk about his gay son (who passed away in a tragic car accident) and his support of LGBT rights, tonight, you are my hero! Thank you.
