It’s an amazing feeling to see all the progress that Have A Gay Day has made over the years. From it’s humble beginnings as a Facebook page no one ever imagined that it would turn into a charity organization. You never realize that rainbow takeovers in the middle of the night would inspire someone or change a life but it happens. Remembering one of the rainbow takeovers there was a grandfather that commented on one of the photos of some rainbow yarn and said that just looking at all of our rainbows sparked something in him to really think about acceptance. He said that at that moment his granddaughter deserved to be loved and something just clicked. If it takes a rainbow to find acceptance then we will post rainbows till everyone wakes up to equality. That was one of the moments that just makes you happy you started a little place called Have A Gay Day.

In the Beginning, There Was a March
On Oct. 11, 1987, half a million people participated in the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It was the second such demonstration in our nation’s capital and resulted in the founding of a number of LGBTQ organizations, including the National Latino/a Gay & Lesbian Organization (LLEGÓ) and AT&T’s LGBTQ employee group, LEAGUE. The momentum continued four months after this extraordinary march as more than 100 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer activists from around the country gathered in Manassas, Va., about 25 miles outside Washington, D.C. Recognizing that the LGBTQ community often reacted defensively to anti-LGBTQ actions, they came up with the idea of a national day to celebrate coming out and chose the anniversary of that second march on Washington to mark it. The originators of the idea were Rob Eichberg, a founder of the personal growth workshop, The Experience, and Jean O’Leary, then head of National Gay Rights Advocates. From this idea the National Coming Out Day was born.
Each year on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day continues to promote a safe world for LGBTQ individuals to live truthfully and openly.
