National Coming Out Day
Today is National Coming Out Day! Observed every year on
October 11, National Coming Out Day promotes civil awareness about gay,
lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues and lifestyles. October 11 is
the anniversary of the second March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay
Rights, which took place in 1987. Over half a million people
participated in six days of demonstrations and activities.
National Coming Out Day is celebrated in the United States, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Participate in a local event, post a Facebook status, or wear a classic gay pride symbol to show your support!
