more queer people than you think...
WELCOMING OUT is a symbol you can use to show queer people that they can come out to you without fear if they want to.
On the whole, WELCOMING OUT is a social initiative, co-sponsored by many well-known organizations, that wants to make the symbol widely popular.
A good feeling - isn't that what we all want? That's what WELCOMING OUT is all about: a good feeling for you and a good feeling for the people you care about.
