What is ‘coming out’? Is it significant?

Coming is out is a process by which queer folk share their identity with people around them, or people they trust.

 This is a very important milestone in an individual’s personal journey of acceptance of themselves, and acceptance by people around them.

Coming out can be an emotional awakening. However,  please note that if  your queerness compromises with your safety, coming out should not be a priority, Being safe is always the priority.
