It’s October 11, which is National Coming Out Day! Today marks the 29th anniversary of this celebration, which also commemorates the 29th anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. This day serves as a reminder that one of the most basic tools as a member of the LGBTQ+ community is coming out. It helps send the message that LGBTQ+ are not only invisible but are part of our friend groups, families, and circles of loved ones.
National Coming Out Day Events:
Wednesday, October 11th
- @11am-2pm (1st Floor Commons) —- Coming Out Photo Booth
- @7pm-8pm (Cleary Dining Room) ——— Coming Out Stories Panel
