Good article by celeb publicist Howard Bragman on the recent spate of coming out by celebrities like Anderson Cooper and Frank Ocean in a “casual” manner.
Definitely worth reading. Check it out on the Huffington Post.
“No, do not let the casualness fool you. Most of the public figures that have come out have taken decades to reach that decision. And even if you think you already knew and their pronouncements are no big deal, I’m here to tell you it is a big deal. It’s an incredibly courageous act — the single most important thing every LGBT American can do to advance the cause of our civil rights. While we can take a moment to celebrate what we have achieved, it’s important we recommit our efforts to this cause because we have miles to go before we sleep.”
