National Coming Out Week

Thank you for a very successful

 

2016 National Coming Out Week!

 

 

National Coming Out Day (NCOD) is an annual civil awareness day internationally observed on October 11 to recognize members of the LGBTQ+ community.

NCOD was founded in 1988 by Robert Eichberg, a psychologist from New Mexico and founder of the personal growth workshop, The Experience, and Jean O'Leary, an openly gay political leader from Los Angeles and then head of the National Gay Rights Advocates.The date of October 11 was chosen because it was the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.

National Coming Out Week is observed annually on the Penn State campus to celebrate coming out and to raise awareness of the Penn State LGBTQ+ community
