    come out of his closet

    Hello,

    in the sentence below, what does 'come out of his closet' mean?

    He will come out of his closet
    one day and I think he has to find the right guy for that day.

    Thanks in advance

    To "come out of the closet" means to be open about your homosexuality. Homosexuals who pretend to the world that they are heterosexual are said to be "in the closet."

    Re: come out of his closet

    Hello,

    so, in the lyrics American Girls by Counting Crows


    Making me feel so incredible
    She comes out of closets every night
    But then she locks herself away
    Where she could keep everything from me

    the woman is lesbian?

    Thanks

    Not necessarily a lesbian, but she does repress her true sexual nature (promiscuity?) during the day.
