Orlando's Best Fight Ever

On October 11, the LGBT community celebrates National Coming Out Day and this year we have one more newly out person with whom to celebrate--Puerto Rican boxer Orlando Cruz. When the former Olympian said in interviews last week that he is gay, I know he made a world of difference for so many people.

National Coming Out Day: 10 of this year's biggest LGBT stories

October 11 is National Coming Out Day and has been for the last 24 years, after a march on Washington by more than half a million people in support of lesbian and gay rights took place on October 11, 1987.

The purpose of National Coming Out Day is to promote government and public awareness of gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender rights and to celebrate homosexuality.

As LGBT citizens and supporters celebrate this day, we wanted to take a look back at the LGBT stories that have resonated over the last year.
