Happy National Coming Out Day!

Happy National Coming Out Day!

Rather, Happy (belated) National Coming Out Day – because NCOD was actually on Friday!

So, Happy National Coming Out Day – Week – Month – Year – Decade – Whatever. Take a moment to celebrate all the glorious gay, bi, trans, queer folks who make this world sparkle.

National Coming Out Day (NCOD) is observed annually on October 11th to celebrate individuals who publicly identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer (LGBTQ). It started on October 11, 1988 to commemorate the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. The day is often marked by events like public rallies, festivals, and gatherings. For some, attending an NCOD event holds an important place in the gay rights movement as a rite of passage.

Fostering  support and building community is a HUGE part of any coming out or pride celebration. And LGBTQ folks and their straight allies are busy building community right here at the Library. Check it out!
