Campuses and community organizations across the country celebrate National Coming Out Week in October each year leading up to National Coming Out Day (October 11). At the University of Redlands, we provide informational displays and media presentations of the contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer people to our society.
We also build a "Coming Out Closet" in the middle of campus where LGBTQ people and Allies can "come out" in support of the LGBTQ community. This week features speakers, vigils and spoken word events in an effort to educate the broader campus community about LGBTQ issues.
If you are interested in helping to plan events for National Coming Out Week, please contact Sarah Vilardo.
