Gallaudet Closed 

There was an email sent out at 4:55am stating that the students have blocked all the entrances to Gallaudet.

So, Gallaudet is closed, including MSSD and Kendall.

I'm keeping my eyes peeled on updates.


Other than that:

Happy National Coming Out Day!

That would be interesting day and memory for Deaf GLBT's coming out today and participating in the Gallaudet protest.

Anyways, a couple of tips when coming out:

1. Don't let anyone pressure you to come out when you're not ready to do so. However, do keep in mind that coming out is a process. If and when you're ready to come out, "try" out with 1 or 2 people. Over time, you will discover that people will have various reactions to your coming out. Over time, you'll know how to address these reactions.

2. Before coming out, pack an overnight bag and ask a friend if his or her place can be used as Plan B. You never know that your coming out might produce a negative (hopefully not violent) reaction or surrounding. If you feel unsafe, after coming out, get out and go straight to Plan B.

There are more tips but I feel that these 2 are the most important. If you're unsure how to come out, ask those who have already come out to share their stories with you.

With that said, Happy Coming Out!
