CELEBRATE NATIONAL LGBTQ+ COMING OUT DAY WITH JEREMY OWENS
Sunday, October 11, is National Coming Out Day, a day set aside to honor and celebrate LGBTQ+ coming out stories. Everyone is full of PRIDE in June, but we can’t skip over the beauty, triumph, and bravery of Coming Out Day in October!
Join us for this inclusive, supportive, and loving class where we’ll celebrate the rich and diverse LGBTQ+ community and its literary icons, as well as write and share personal stories. Are you trans, disabled, a minority, or someone with a different perspective? Are you a pro at sharing stories? Are you scared because you’ve never done anything like this? Are you all of these things? None of them? Whatever your story is, whatever your background is, whatever experience level you’re coming from, we want you! Everyone is welcome! Let’s celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, coming out, and write your story!
