Just wanted to say thank you again to everyone who sent nice words about the end of our Cap run this week. It’ll take some time and distance but as it stands this is maybe the finished work I am most proud of in my career.

Seeing that is an experience I will always remember, thanks for letting me be a part of it. -- Nick Spencer

...which has been an event since 1988, in the USA, UK and, for some reason, Switzerland.

Initially for coming out as gay, but since extended to include coming out as being anywhere on the LGBTQA+ spectrum.

Now, some people find they come come out without effort, and that's fine, some people put it off, or never come out for whatever reason, and that's fine too (and of course, in some cases it's just not safe to do so), so there is no pressure to come out, but if the focus helps some people, then more power to them!

So how do the comics handle such things?

In recent times it's been a lot more straightforward, as identifying as nonstraight is not automatically the social outcast but 26 years ago... not so easy.
