Happy National Coming Out Day! I am a cisgender gay man, a migrant, a survivor. Coming out is not just about personal gender and sexual liberation, but is also political. It influences others around us, and it's powerful. Take all the time you need to tell the world who you are. Coming out is not a one-off event, but it's a daily choice to bare your soul: at work, at the barbers, at the gym, at the pub.
