Show your pride and celebrate being you! Join the LGBT Resource Center in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of National Coming Out Day with a week-long series of events including FREE HIV Testing provided by JASMYN. Every year, people across the world celebrate National Coming Out Day by coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, many other identities or as an ally!

Since "coming out" is such a uniquely personal, continuing process and experience, not everyone wants to, feels safe enough or needs to be out, which is totally okay!

This year, there will be different events, discussions, and programs highlighting the experiences of being LGBTQ+ and ally. 

 

If you are hosting an event during Coming Out Week and would like to include it on this page, email Dwan Love-Dinkens.
