National Coming Out Day is an internationally-observed civil awareness day for the LGBTQ+ community. It is observed on October 11 every year by members of the LGBTQ+ communities and those who stand in solidarity with them. National Coming Out Day is on the anniversary of the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights and the first visit of the AIDS Memorial Quilt to Washington DC.
Due to fall break the Center for Sexual Gender and Diversity will hold our Coming Out Day event on Thursday, October 6th. The CSGD, student groups from across campus, and supportive offices will gather on the Bryan Center plaza from 11am-2pm to distribute T-shirts and information about coming out, being out, and the LGBTQ+ Community at Duke. Please check our Calendar page and Facebook page to learn how to get involved!
Volunteers are always appreciated, for more information on how you can get involved please contact, email@example.com.
