Mhm, quite. Why?seriously?
Of people who are flat out gay? I really am not sure, because I associate in fora that seem to have disproportionate numbers of LGBT people, so my parallax view of the demographic may be completely wrong. I'd guess around 5-7% of people are flat-out gay, and you probably have 10% more who are somewhere in between (like moi).What's your estimate on the Gay proportion of the US population (??) I'd like to know.

I really don't know. I know that anti-gay people like to lowball it, and I suspect of pro-gay people of inflating the numbers a bit.agreed....i thought the accepted number was around 10%?
Cards? I'm not understanding D:well, the timing might need to be right, i would think....and would depend on who you are telling. are there cards for that? ;-)
Oh, duh >_>."Comin Out" cards......
that's too bad. i hope your immediate family is supportive, and to hell with your extended family.Oh, duh >_>.
I dunno. A lot of people knew already, it's just that all of my extended family are horrible religious bigots, so...
I just say "out with it." It would be nice to just hand someone a card and then have no more questions, but it almost never happens that way.
Maybe when the bolded part becomes true, you'll get your day.latest stats say about 7-8% of the US pop is gay. of course all those stats rely on the fact that people are being honest when asked about their sexual preference.
what is the point of having a national coming out day? how about a national shut the **** up, no one really gives a **** who you boink day?
the whole thing seems a bit narcissistic if you ask me... "ooooh look at me everybody, I'm special. please, please, please pay attention to me"
that's just it...I don't want or need a day. sad that so many people do. at least in the US gays are pretty much tolerated and for the most part people don't give a rat's ass. could be much worseMaybe when the bolded part becomes true, you'll get your day.
Dozens hurt, arrested in clashes at Serb gay march - World news - Europe - msnbc.comBELGRADE, Serbia — Serbian riot police fought running battles Sunday with thousands of far-right supporters who hurled Molotov cocktails and stun grenades to try disrupt a gay pride march in downtown Belgrade. More than 140 people were hurt and more than 200 were arrested, officials said.
Thousands of police officers sealed off the streets in the capital where the march took place, repeatedly clashing at several locations with rioters who tried to burst through security cordons.
Several parked cars were set on fire or damaged, shop windows were broken, garbage containers were overturned and streets signs destroyed. Several shops were looted before police restored peace late afternoon.
The anti-gay rioters also fired shots and threw Molotov cocktails at the headquarters of the ruling pro-Western Democratic Party, setting the building's garage on fire. The state TV building and the headquarters of other political parties were also attacked, with many windows shattered by stones.
Protesters chanting "death to homosexuals!" hurled bricks, stones, glass bottles and stun grenades at riot police. Police responded by firing tear gas and deploying armored vehicles to disperse the protesters, who remained in the heart of the capital even after the brief pride march ended.
