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.

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.
