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 queer people to our society.
We also build a "Coming Out Closet" in the middle of campus where LGBTQIA2S+ people and Allies can "come out" in support of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. This week features speakers, vigils, and spoken word events to educate the broader campus community about LGBTQIA2S+ issues.
If you are interested in helping plan events for National Coming Out Week, please contact a Pride Center intern.
