8 Creative Ways To Enjoy November 2022 for Gay Men
We’ve listed eight ways you can spend November as a gay man. Plan the week ahead with the following recommendations.
Celebrate (Or Come Out) On Thanksgiving Day
This suggestion is especially dedicated to gay men who haven’t come out of their closets yet. Although November 11 was designated as National Coming Out Day, Thanksgiving is widely celebrated as America’s unofficial coming out day.
Stories have shown that the family Thanksgiving meal is the best opportunity and venue to break the news to close relatives and friends, making this holiday the unofficial coming-out day for many Americans.
It is said that the Thanksgiving holiday falls perfectly in line with the time when first-year college students return home for the holidays. As such, if you’ve been considering coming out, why not stick to ‘modern-day custom’ and break the news during the next Thanksgiving meal? Otherwise, it’s perfectly fine to wait until you’re fully prepared.
Mark the following dates on your calendars this November 2022, and join in the celebration.
Transgender Awareness Week
Transgender Awareness Week (TAW) is a weeklong event building up to TDoR on November 13. TDoR occurs yearly on November 20. Join advocacy parades, or show your support through social media accounts.
Intersex Solidarity Day on November 8
The eighth of November annually serves as Intersex Day of Remembrance, also referred to as Intersex Solidarity Day. Extend your support to fellow LGBTQ+ community members by engaging in awareness-raising activities for intersex people.
Express your Salutations on November 11
On November 11th, people all across the world celebrate Veterans Day. It is a federal holiday observed annually to pay tribute to the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. Gay men who served as leaders are often featured in posts and materials related to this holiday.
