This week for Terminology Tuesday I will explain the closet.
You’ve probably heard of a closet before. That thing people put their clothes in. But why would someone be in it? Or come out of it?
If someone is in the closet, they are not open about their identity, whether that be their sexual identity, their romantic identity, their gender identity, or any combination of the three.
If someone comes out of the closet, they are letting the people in their life know, explicitly, about their identity/identities.
If you want to know any more about the closet, have any questions, or have anything you would like to add, feel free to comment or contact me.
