National Coming Out Day Is Today
October 11 is noted as National Coming Out Day.
National Coming Out Day is an internationally recognized observance that promotes the civil discussion and awareness of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people across the world.
National Coming Out Day is observed every year on October 11th and on October 12th in the United Kingdom. The event was founded by Dr. Rob Eichberg and Jean O’Leary. Their main goal is to promote gay people to be able to live freely in their respective communities.
It is highly encouraged that all gay pride advocates wear gay and lesbian pride symbols on this day.
