Many have been sending messages of support to LGBT people to mark National Coming Out Day. 

Every year on October 11, gay people across the UK discuss the moments they came out and show their support for others who are thinking of doing the same.

Twitter users have posted about the difficulties they faced when coming out but also said it was very much worthwhile.Others have encouraged those who are ready to reveal their sexuality, but only if they feel safe to do so.

The overall message is that everyone should be loved for who they are.
