National Coming Out Day is here, and it is important. We are starting off with a pretty bold statement. Why is it important? It is important because this day represents a very sentimental moment for a lot of LGBT people. It is a way of symbolising and presenting their struggles and journeys to the world and most importantly, it is a reminder to themselves about the challenges that they have overcome to get to where they are in life. Not to say that everyone gets to come out. We appreciate and acknowledge the people who silently fight their life battles on a daily basis and do not have the liberty or privilege or security to come out of the closet and find acceptance. Even if you are not out of the closet and you are reading this, know that you are still loved and cherished, and no one can undermine your identity or sexuality.

Celebrate your sexuality this National Coming Out Day, regardless of whether you are out or not, by watching one, few, or even all of these amazing films available on the LesFlicks VOD platform that represent what coming out entails, in different ways.
