Tiffnay and daughter Zoe

Tiffany shares why National Coming Out Day is so important

“Our daughter was struggling with something. We were certain we knew what was going on, but this was her own journey. We have always been a very open and communicative family and we were confident she would talk to us when she was ready. Our daughter, now a sophomore in college, shared with us 5 years ago that she is a lesbian. As she told us, she cried and we cried. For her and for us, these were tears of relief, joy and fear. She wasn’t worried about our love and acceptance; that was never in doubt for her. She was anxious about holding all of this in for so long, and needed to let it out.

I am so thankful that our daughter trusted us and knew she would be accepted for who she is. I am proud of my daughter. I love and support her in all things. Our fear and ongoing worries for her are centered around the bullying, the hate, the discrimination, the judgement — all of which she has experienced since coming out. She wants to live her life. Her ability to stand up to that hate and discrimination, to say who she is and who she loves, makes me so proud and proud of everyone in the community who came before her and those who will come after.”
