More than 11,000 people were marching against gay marriage in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico on Sept. 10th. Queue our hero, a 12-year-old Mexican boy, who stood against the crowd as a solitary voice of reason against the tide of oppression.

Afterwards, the child said, "I have an uncle who is gay and I hate the hatred."

Same-sex marriage has been legalized in Mexico City and 9 of the nation's 31 states. There are challenges currently underway in the 22 other states.


See the people marching here.

His moment was reminiscent of the Tiananmen Square "Tank Man" in Beijing in 1989:

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe made headlines in September when he penned the most perfect letter ever to a Maryland politician who opposes gay marriage.

Now Kluwe, who is straight and married, has gone even further in his support of gay marriage.

In addition to posing for the latest cover of leading gay lifestyle magazine Out, tonight Kluwe will debate against Minnesota's proposed marriage amendment (which defines marriage as between one man and woman).

Unfortunately, it looks as though Kluwe will debate an empty chair -- amendment supporters Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and former Viking Matt Birk both declined his debate invites.

Sally Field accepted the Human Rights Campaign's Ally for Equality award over the weekend.

Her acceptance speech, in praise of her youngest son Sam, who is gay, is the most moving thing you'll hear all week:

Nature made Sam, it wasn't a choice.

Sam was different and his journey to allow himself to be what nature intended him to be was not an easy one. As his mother I consider it one of the great privileges of my life to be allowed to be part of it.

So -- happy National Coming Out Day. Just in case, here are 6 Bits of Unconventional Advice to help you mark the occasion.
