181011 National Coming Out Day

In 2018 we mark the 30th anniversary of National Coming Out Day, a day aimed at letting LGBTI people know that it is ok to be themselves and that it is ok to let others see the whole you.

This national day of celebration is held annually on the 11th October, and draws its foundation from the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, which was held on the 14th October 1988. The rally was attended by between 75,000 and 125,000 people demanding equal rights within the United States for Lesbian and Gay personnel.
