At Out & Equal, we know the power of coming out.
When people come out, they can transform their workplaces by shattering stereotypes, providing new perspectives, and giving themselves the freedom to bring their whole selves to work every day. Those who are out at work can be role models for others and they can speak up more readily on behalf of themselves and their co-workers when prejudices or misunderstandings arise.
On National Coming Out Day, we stand in support of each and every person who is coming out today. We applaud you for your courage today and wish you all of the best. And to those for whom coming out is not yet a reality, please know that we are continuing every day to work for a world where it is safe and fair for you to be yourselves.
