"comes out" of "the closet
" when he
reveals his sexual orientation
to friends, family, co-workers, etc. Possible reason
s for this are a desire to be honest
, to have someone to talk to
, or to gain instant (though often unfounded) credibility
on all things stylish
One should not come out for mere shock value. Far from tactful, this approach usually doesn't go over well.
Coming out icebreakers:
- "Mom, I've got cancer and only 6 months to live. ... Oh, I'm kidding, I'm just gay."
- "Please pass the mashed potatos to the fag on your left."
- ... more to come.
