Join Us for National Coming Out Day in South County

On October 11 and 12, our LGBTQ Youth Space, a program of our Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley division, is presenting two observances of National Coming Out Day in South County.


What is “National Coming Out Day”?

On Oct. 11, 1987, half a million people participated in the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. It was the second such demonstration in our nation’s capital and resulted in the founding of a number of LGBTQ organizations, including the National Latino/a Gay & Lesbian Organization (LLEGÓ) and AT&T’s LGBTQ employee group, LEAGUE.

Each year on Oct. 11, National Coming Out Day continues to promote a safe world for LGBTQ individuals to live truthfully and openly.
