be yourself




Today is National Coming Out Day, founded in 1989. The logo above was donated and drawn by Keith Haring, shortly before his death in 1990.

"My Father has ten brothers and sisters. It's a marine-corps family. All my Father's relatives are marines; I know that I could have been a marine. On one side there is this really macho thing, but there is also this thing of pride in yourself and in family and in real simple things. I could have done all that, but it was even more incredible to have their respect even though I was not a marine and even though the whole family knew, by now figuring it out, that I'm gay. Haring is their name, too, and what I've done makes them incredibly proud. And though we never talked about it, after coming to New York and visiting me when I was living with Juan, my parents finally accepted him as part of the family, buying him a present at Christmastime. And, by the way, the fact that he was black was an added thing for them to deal with. Although they're a very open-minded family, I heard nigger jokes at the Thanksgiving table growing up. Not in the last years, but when I was a kid. So it's changed incredibly. It happened over time. It happened, I think, because I taught them, and my sisters taught them.

"Now it's to the point that they come to New York and they're friends with my friends and they're comfortable being at my parties, where, like, a drag queen can walk up and say hello - like Dean Johnson of Dean and the Weenies, who's very tall, shaved bald, very masculine looking but wearing this incredible little negligee and platforms. They tell their friends about it. On their refrigerator at home they have pictures. There's a picture of them with Yoko Ono at the last opening. And a picture of Bill Cosby posing with them, sitting on the Huxtables' couch, him sitting with his arm around my mother and dad, on either side. They have these Polaroids on their refrigerator beside all of the report cards and pictures of the grandchildren." - Keith Haring, 1989.


There are many ways to come out. Being yourself is one of them.
