For Matt Bomer, this National Coming Out Day was doubly special, as it was also the Doom Patrol star's 43rd birthday. He too took to Twitter to celebrate both occasions, and asked for fans who wanted to celebrate his birthday to consider giving to a good cause.
"Today is #NationalComingOutDay AND my birthday! You can help me celebrate by by donating to The @TrevorProject, the world’s largest suicide prevention organization for LGBTQ young people," Bomer wrote, alongside a video in which he touts all the good works The Trevor Project does on a daily basis.
The NFL also honored the occasion with a video posted to Twitter encouraging any player who is ready to come out to do so and to embrace their truth.
"All current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we," is the message shared by a number of different players and coaches in the inspiring video.
"On National Coming Out Day, and every day, we support you," The NFL tweeted, alongside the video. "It takes all of us, and you deserve to be all of you. #ItTakesAllOfUs #BeAllOfYou #NationalComingOutDay."

it's national coming out day! today i'm thinking about how i've had to come out multiple times, including to myself. the straights don't always understand why it can still be hard in 2020 to accept (or even to know!) that you're queer. we get it. we love you. you're not alone. -k

Its National Coming Out Day. The first 3 Neon Trees albums I wrote in the closet but I hid queer messages in songs. “Everybody Talks” was about my ex girlfriend spreading rumors that I was gay (Surprise girl) I came out 6 years ago & it was the BEST move for my health & happiness
