Coming out day props

Props to everyone who is cool on national coming out day.  I don’t love the idea of an “ally,” but I’m enjoying the discussion about the Harvard wrestling team’s collective support for a gay teammate on national coming out day.

Wearing a shirt that said, “Some Dudes Marry Dudes. Get Over It,” Anthony J. Buxton ’13, a varsity wrestler, said he had received smiles from people on the street.

“There is a much larger community of allies who are willing and ready–even eager–to stand with their LGBT peers,” McCarthy said.
