CELEBRATE NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY BY SHARING YOUR STORIES!
Today 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 and supportive workshop where we’ll celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and write and share personal stories. 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!
