National Coming Out Day 2019
On Friday, October 11, Pace is celebrating National Coming Out Day in support of our LGBTQA+ community on both campuses! Express yourself at open mic, get featured in an art installation, and grab a rainbow bagel to keep you going.
Founded in 1988 by activists Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Leary, National Coming Out Day is grounded in the idea that ignorance thrives in silence. By openly celebrating diversity in the LGBTQA+ community and raising awareness about the civil rights movement that continues today, we can break down fears and stereotypes. This is an important day for queer folk everywhere, and here at Pace, we invite you to celebrate with us!
All Day | Campus-wide
Every year, the LGBTQA+ and Social Justice Center celebrates National Coming Out Day by creating an art installation that showcases the stories and coming out experiences of all LGBTQA+ folks on campus. This art installation displays those stories using balloons that will be scattered around campus! To participate, please fill out as many questions as you feel comfortable. Your stories will remain anonymous.
Coming out of the Stacks
1:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. | Birnbaum Library, 2nd Floor
Celebrate with the LGBTQA+ and Social Justice Center as well as the Library by labeling queer books with rainbow stickers! It’s a great way to boost visibility and spend time with a wonderful community of people at Pace. Food will be served.
12:00 p.m. | Boudreau Lounge
Fuel up on your way to class and show your pride by grabbing a rainbow bagel! It’s a fun way to take part in this important initiative, plus it’s tasty, too. Pass the cream cheese, please.
