OutFest: National Coming Out Day

Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 11:00am to 1:00pm

BGSU Firelands, North Building, Pit
One University Drive Huron, Ohio 44839

Each year, universities across the United States celebrate National Coming Out Day*, a day where the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) individuals are recognized.

On campus, the day is an opportunity to educate people about how LGBTQ folks are often silenced, as well as ways to support people during their coming out journeys. And while the day may provide an educational opportunity for potential allies, it holds even more meaning for LGBTQ community members who want to be authentically seen and recognized.

We will be providing resources, instagrammable moments, and showcasing LGBTQ+ community through short films.

For more information contact fireactivities@bgsu.edu, call (419) 372-0621 or stop by George Mylander Hall 135.


*We are observing this day, a day early, as National Coming Out Day falls on Friday, October 11.
