Another Coming Out Day, Another Terrific Success

Pride month is widely-known and widely-celebrated event, observed every June in recognition of LGBTQ+ visibility and in remembrance of the Stonewall Riots of 1969. Another, lesser-known, yet equally important day has just occurred. October 11th, 2018, is National Coming Out Day. National Coming Out Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, commemorating and recognizing those who have come out and presenting an opportunity to do so for those who have not. It’s an important and inspiring day for the LGBT community, and many people do feel empowered to come out. We recently celebrated National Coming Out Day in the cafeteria during both early and late lunches. It was a wonderful day filled with laughter, joy, and memories.
