Coming out parties are apparently becoming a thing in some progressive families, Ainsley L. I really like the concept. A teenager comes out as gay and then there’s a celebration. Maybe a party. A cake. Acknowledgement that something special is happening.

Breaking out of our closets can be damn hard work!
