Coming out means informing someone something about yourself that might not be instantly obvious. In relation to gender identity and sexual orientation, this means sharing with others that you are LGBTQ. Being LGBTQ should not be something to be ashamed of; it should be something to be proud of. After all, we are all different in some way or another, and these differences make us who we are. If you are ready to come out and show others that you are proud of who you are, but you want to do it in a fun way, here are some of the most inventive ways to come out as LGBTQ in 2021:
