It’s October 11, which is National Coming Out Day! Today marks the 28th anniversary of this celebration, which also commemorates the 28th 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.
Happy National Coming Out Day to all of our LGBTQ+ friends, family, and allies at Stonehill. To those who are looking to come out, may you find the safety and courage to do so in your own time.
