Oct. 11 is National Coming Out day. The day is held in support of the LGBT community, and allies of the LGBT community. With such projects as the Trevor Project and the It Gets Better Movement, coming out is not as hard as it used to be, but, is still an integral part in the stories of men, women, and transgendered people living around the world. Though the movement has grown and has taken giant leaps in terms of equality, there is still a lot that has to be done.
Underwear models Colby Melvin, Brandon Brown, and Cory Lee are amongst those who continue to raise awareness for LGBT and human rights issues. Melvin shared his coming out story in a special video last year. For Melvin, this year’s National Coming Out day is more than about gay people coming out. He sees it as a time where anybody of any body size, ethnicity, or sexual orientation can embrace who they are in a world that can be a bit non inclusive at times.
The three models filmed a very special message for their fans at The Underwear Expert in commemoration of the day. Check out the video above.
