Happy Friday, baby queermos! It’s been a long week, but you made it. Here’s a roundup of some important things to be aware of this week.

National Coming Out Day was this week, and QueerPHC stands in solidarity with everyone who has chosen to come out, as well as with those who can’t or don’t want to come out, for reasons that might include safety or privacy. Autostraddle has a handy masterpost on coming out (or staying closeted), filled with resources from other queer folks. The Advocate has a post on the importance of consent and autonomy when it comes to coming out. A bisexual mom shares her story of coming out to her family.

LGBTQ+ History: Out Magazine has a new exclusive: a 1989 interview that journalist Eric Marcus conducted with trans icon Sylvia Rivera that was never released until now. She speaks about her life and her memories of the Stonewall Riots.

People to Know: AfterEllen provides a list of LGBT vloggers you should have on your radar.

Video of the Week: Feminist vlogger Riley J. Dennis explains why terms like “gold star lesbian” and “platinum gay” are pretty fucked up.

See you next week!
