National Coming Out Day

National Coming Out Day is an annual commemoration observed on October 11 each year. Originating on the one-year anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, the date was selected to pay tribute to the courage of LGBTQ+ individuals who choose to come out and embrace an open life. While it initially began as an American awareness day, the significance of National Coming Out Day remains profoundly relevant to LGBTQ+ communities worldwide today.
