- a coming out that is on your schedule
- a coming out that makes it easier for you to take
- a coming out that cherry-picks who knows according to your standards
- a coming out that makes sense
- a coming out that happens after certain transition milestones (HRT, surgery, therapy, etc.)
- a coming out, period.
If you’ve never had to come out as anything, don’t tell me how I should’ve just sat someone down and did it or tell me other ways of how I should’ve done it. Even if you have, coming out is different for somebody else and it’s easy to have this idea of how it should have went down if you aren’t actually that person.
Especially if you’re straight or cis, please check your privilege and don’t tell me how to come out. You’ll just look like an ass.
Reblogged it before, and I will reblog it again.
Reblogged for my loving partner. You’re fantastic and you don’t owe anyone a goddamn thing, bb.
The first gay pride parade in communist Vietnam took place in the capital Hanoi on Sunday with dozens of cyclists displaying balloons and rainbow flags streaming through the city’s streets.
Organised by the city’s small but growing Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, the event went ahead peacefully with no attempt by police to stop the colorful convoy of about 100 activists despite their lack of official permission.
“There was no intervention which is a good thing for Vietnam,” said one of the organizers, Tam Nguyen.
She said the parade had helped unite the LGBT community and raise awareness among “curious” onlookers, although many had no idea what the rainbow flag — an international symbol for LGBT groups — symbolized.
The cyclists attracted no hostility — and only a little attention — as they made their way down Hanoi’s busy streets.
