In honour of National Coming Out Day, please join the Mulgrave GSA on this Fri Oct 12 for snacks and a special screening of “Love, Simon” in the film room 1034.
Coming out – whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied – STILL MATTERS. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law.
This day honours all who have come out as LGBTQ or as a straight ally for equality – that takes bravery, and we commend you. Every person who speaks up changes more hearts and minds, and creates new advocates for equality.
For more on coming out, visit HRC’s Coming Out Center or check out the resources below.
