Celebrate National Coming Out Day

By Jiwon Han DLA Land and Maritime People and Culture

October 11 marks the 29th anniversary of National Coming Out Day.

The DLA Land and Maritime Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Special Emphasis Program (LGBT SEP) invites everyone to celebrate National Coming Out Day.

Robert Eichberg, one of the co-founders of National Coming Out Day described it best when he said, "Most people think they don't know anyone gay or lesbian, and in fact everybody does. It's imperative that we come out and let people know who we are and disabuse them of their fears and stereotypes”.

If you're interested in joining the LGBT SEP as a committee member or would like to support the SEP in any way, email the email the LGBT SEP Chair Person or call 614-692-9931.
