Some may think that the same day that Donald Trump and Mike Pence take control of the United States government would be an odd day to come out of the closet as a homosexual, but not one hit wonder iLoveMakonnen. This morning, Makonnen came out as a gay man on Twitter. I applaud him for his courage, although I still yearn for people to evolve enough that coming out doesn't require courage. It should take as much courage to come out as gay as it does to be heterosexual. Hopefully we'll get there in my lifetime.
