Although society is slowly becoming more accepting of gay and lesbian people, coming out of the closet is still a very scary experience for many. It can damage relationships with friends or family, create a hostile work environment, and even subject people to threats and violence. So when someone comes out of the closet and it’s a positive experience for everyone involved, it’s something to celebrate.
