ANNUAL EVENT SERIES: UNH LGBTQA Coming Out Week! (October)
National Coming Out Day is internationally celebrated every October 11th, as a day to "come out" and increase visibility of people that identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer......, and allies. The first National Coming Out Day was held on October 11, 1988. This date was chosen for the annual event in commemoration of the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It also marks the anniversary of the first visit of the AIDS Memorial Quilt to Washington D.C. Many communities and college campuses sponsor activities such as dances, film festivals, workshops, literature booths, and rallies on National Coming Out Day. Join us for the following events and gatherings as we celebrate National Coming Out Week at UNH!
