I make a point of “celebrating” National Coming Out Day every year on The Randy Report. I feel honored that over the years, readers have reached out to me and come out to me because they found this blog.
I’m always stoked that Las Vegas does a whole weekend event for NCOD, and this year is no different. There are events of all kinds to celebrate coming out, awareness of the LGBT community and civil rights movement.
