    Honestly for me it was just the random everyday people who decided to make coming out videos on YouTube that made me realise you can be an everyday ordinary person and just happen to be lgbt. That might be obvious to most people, but to me it wasn't obvious on an emotional level until I saw and heard people's first hand accounts for myself.

    I was aware of some famous lgbt people but they didn't really inspire me, perhaps I shouldn't admit that but it's the truth.

    You know I think for me it was the crowd at the first gay bar I ever went to. It was a little over twenty-six years ago and I had finally decided this is who I am, but still really struggled with who I could be. So many people still thought it was a mental illness and the people who weren't hurtful were generally afraid for you or sorry for you and it was really easy given all that to be sorry for yourself. And I went to my first Pride Parade and it was just amazing and I wanted so much to be part of this community but I didn't meet anyone. So I went to a bar along the parade route. And it was like waking up in Oz and suddenly everything is in color. I remember walking in and there were a few hundred people in there and they were singing and laughing and carrying on. And everyone was so happy and everyone seemed to know each other and it was just like nothing I'd ever encountered before. And everyone seemed so normal and yet everyone seemed so happy and in that moment it seemed so normal to be so happy. And I remember so distinctly thinking this is who I could be, I could be one of these people. And so I started to introduce myself, and then they started to introduce me around, and I'm sure I must have met at least a couple hundred people that afternoon--quite a few of whom I'm still friends with twenty-some-odd years later. The rest as they say is history--I even met my husband in that same bar six years later--so very much history. But, I'll always remember looking out over that crowd for that moment in time and feeling it all finally click and thinking for the first time: I got this, it's all gonna be alright.

    For me its has a lot more to do with average everyday people that are confidently out, living their best lives.

    Youtubers. Acquaintances that I jealously watched come out. And one kid I friends with a short while - He had absolutely no shame with who he was lol.

    I am happy for you.I feel sad when I see people trap in a marriage with someone whom they do not love.That is hell on earth.I would rather die than suffer for the rest of my life.

    Rachel Maddow and Ellen DeGeneres. Rachel is so determined, and thorough, and confident, and witty, I want to be like her when I'm older. Ellen taught so many people about kindness and acceptance through her coming out, I wish I could do the same with the people close to me.
