Bonjour !

Context: a gay man who publicly announces to his family that he is gay. Is there an expression in French for come out of the closet (sortir du placard?)

English: He's a pretty brave guy; he came out of the closet in the 70s at a time when homosexuality was not very widely accepted.

Français : ... il est sorti du placard dans les années soixante-dix ...

Merci beaucoup !

    On parle bien de sortir du placard:tick: On utilise aussi l'expression faire son coming out.
