Newsy's Cody LaGrow sat down with his parents for National Coming Out Day to discuss what they've learned as a family.By Cody LaGrow | October 11, 2016
Coming out as a member of or an ally to the LGBTQ community not only requires bravery, it makes others more likely to support equality under the law if they know someone who identifies as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied.
Oct. 11 marks the 28th anniversary of National Coming Out Day. Here at Newsy, we are launching a new series titled "Let Me Get This Straight" where we'll bring you a range of stories from the LGBTQ community.
On National Coming Out Day, we are heading to Mascoutah, Illinois — a single-stoplight town outside St. Louis, Missouri — and home to some American heroes who know a thing or two about witnessing a walk out of the closet. Those heroes are my parents.
