Country stars like Kacey Musgraves and Maren Morris are making sure they know how much they love all of their fans as they commemorate National Coming Out Day.

Musgraves tweeted about the special occasion, supporting her fans in the LGBTQIA+ community and providing a safe place for them to feel loved and accepted.

“Happy National Coming Out Day! I pray whoever is reading this and isn’t “out” yet has a stable and welcoming environment at home but if you don’t – please know you have a massive tribe across the globe waiting with open arms to love & accept you for exactly who you are. It’s a bummer but it’s ok (& sometimes necessary) to have to get what you need emotionally outside of your family,” she stated in the honorable photo post.

The “High Horse” singer continued on by reminding her social media followers that everyone has their own unique paths to self-discovery, and to not be discouraged or feel alone.

“Everyone’s journey is different and there’s no timeline for finding the confidence to be your true self,” she said.

Musgraves attached a link to a handbook about coming out made by the Trevor Project, an organization dedicated to serving and providing resources for the LGBTQIA+ community.

Morris also chimed in the on the celebration with a simple tweet showing admiration for her fans on National Coming Out Day.

“Thinking of my LGBTQ+ friends always and admiring your bravery. May your journey be respected, supported and on your own time,” she wrote with a rainbow emoji and the #NationalComingOutDay hashtag that was trending on Twitter.

National Coming Out Day was established on October 11, 1988, in honor of the first anniversary of the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.
