Today marks a special day for the LGBTQ community, as it’s #NationalComingOutDay, and Twitter is positively radiant. Rainbows are raining down (no pun intended) and it’s beautiful AF. Most of us know someone who is already out, but even if you don’t, you can still appreciate the huge groups of people who are striving to keep our friends in the LGBTQ community safe and feeling loved. It has been a hard fight, and it is far from over.

There are some funny…

And some sweet…

And some so powerful, it’s awe-inspiring.

If you yourself are struggling to come out, know that we are here. We love you! And remember, just because it’s National Coming Out Day doesn’t mean you have to do it today. Or tomorrow. Or ever. But you will always have people who will love you, whatever you choose to do.

How are you celebrating today? Tweet us @BritandCo with #NationalComingOutDay!
