English for Schmucks – Come Out of the Closet

Come out of the closet is a fairly common phrase, one we encounter at least once a month.

So what does the phrase mean?

Come out of the closet means to disclose publicly that one is a homosexual (now don’t ask us what a homosexual means).


Isn’t it time for Bollywood producer Narendra Johar to come out of the closet? After all, rumors of the pansy’s predilection for men have been circulating for years.

By the way, come out carries the same meaning.

Can’t but wonder how many of our readers want to come out of the closet but just don’t have the cojones to take that big step. 😉
