Color Splash: National Coming Out Day

This is for the ones who are looking for themselves, those who need the support and those who really need just a word of advice. The Community here in the lovely Upstate New York region is providing some words of wisdom, to people of the world! I'm hoping this reaches so many people, and I'm hoping this helps as many as it reaches. Happy National Coming Out Day!
