On the Human Rights Campaign and National Coming Out Day


Thank you, Human Rights Campaign, not only for sending us such a meaningful letter this week encouraging us to come out, but for being so discreet about it! There was not a single thing on the plain-white envelope — not even your name! — that could have identified either of us as “gay”! (But thank you for addressing us in such a coy little font, as if it were a letter from an old friend, though one who may or may not be gay!) Thank you for enclosing a sticker of your wordless, corporate logo that also would not in a million years be ever read as “gay” by someone not familiar with your vaunted past! Most of all, thank you for being named “Human Rights Campaign,” which so effectively conveys your secret mission!
