National Coming Out Day has me thinking about all that has gone on this past year and how so much of my past has made me stronger in my present. Spirit Day is also coming up on October 17th. For those of you that don’t know, Spirit Day is an annual LGBTQ awareness day observed on the third Thursday in October. It was initially created in response to a rash of widely publicized bullying-related suicides of gay students. GLAAD has since been a leader in helping spread the awareness each year by encouraging millions of Americans to wear purple. National Coming Out Day and Spirit Day have both given me reasons to pause, and think about my own journey as well as the recent events that collided together to become a full circle. A full circle lesson that is – and one that I hope inspires you too.

Hi @mattel! Happy Holidays. We had a difficult time finding a same sex wedding set to give to my niece for her 8th birthday. She and her little sister are flower girls in our upcoming May wedding. We thought it would be special to give her something with a little meaning behind it. What a bummer you don’t make one with two grooms. Anyway, we had to get creative and make a couple purchases. I hope our custom gift inspires you to make a #GayWedding set! 🌈 . Kindest Regards, Matt Jacobi (America’s Favorite #Guncle) . . #LGBT #Grooms #Instagay #LGBTwedding #GayCouple #Guncles #RelationshipGoals #FamilyGoals #MarriageEquality
