National Coming Out Day is celebrated October 11, the anniversary of the historic 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It’s a day to support queer people, whether they’re out or not, by making solidarity visible.

The non-binary pride wallpaper features Nimbus, a character from the upcoming Lightfall expansion. This seems like a pretty solid sign Bungie isn’t forgetting its queer characters and players going forward.
