Celebrating National Coming Out Day

Celebrate National Coming Out Day with The Center for Family Justice as we run through some LGBTQ history, interesting conversations surrounding the language the community uses, and stories of coming out that can expand our mental imagery of queerness.

About National Coming Out Day: First celebrated in the United States in 1988, the initial idea was grounded in the feminist and gay liberation spirit of the personal being political, and the emphasis on the most basic form of activism being coming out to family, friends and colleagues, and living life as an openly LGBTQ person. The foundational belief is that violence against LGBTQ people thrives in an atmosphere of silence and ignorance.

**LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer): The LGBTQ community is the most diverse community in the world. There are LGBTQ-identified people of every age and culture, from every neighborhood, and who speak every language. We encourage all participants to understand that language and perspective are often deeply personal and important to each LGBTQ person and to always remain open to hearing every individual's story and every community's voice, even when it contradicts your previous experiences or learnings.
