‘Coming Out Day’ Has Something For Everyone

8 10 2009

(Cross-posted on my UK blog; a bit more formal than my other posts, since it was originally posted for UK’s Kentucky Kernel…if it’s still being printed, I don’t know 😦   New post relating to the official Coming Out Day will be up soon)

Whether you’re gay or straight, a supportive ally or just wondering what’s going on, you are invited to attend the UK Gay-Straight Alliance’s Coming Out Day this Friday, October 9th, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

The celebration will take place on the Student Center Patio (in front of the Cat’s Den). There will be music, face painting, a bake sale, trivia, an ally pledge, a door to ‘come out’ of, and t-shirt raffles. Please be sure to wear red on Friday to show your support.

UK GSA’s event coincides with the national Coming Out Day, held every October 11th, which falls on a Sunday this year. Both events celebrate LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people, and their freedom to express their sexual identities, as well as the allies who support them.

The UK GSA, founded in 2006, is a non-partisan organization dedicated to forming a positive environment for LGBT students on campus, as well as raising awareness in the Lexington area.

For more information about the event or UK GSA, please contact: Watson Harding (watson.harding@uky.edu), or Matt Layson (malays2@uky.edu).
