National Coming Out Day Speaker Panel

Location: CC-301

UH Hilo LGBTQ+ Center Invites you to participate in celebrating our campus diversity!

Speaker Panel, Coming Out Stories and more!
Resource Tables, Coffee & Donuts

11am–2pm Campus Center Room-301

Every year on National Coming Out Day, we celebrate coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) or as an ally. On Oct. 11, 2017, marks the 29th anniversary of National Coming Out Day. According to the Human Rights Campaign one out of every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. For transgender people, that number is only one in 10. Coming out - whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied - STILL MATTERS. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other.

Special Restrictions: Free to all Students, Faculty, and Staff
