First Year Experience and the LGBTQ+ Resource Centre are on Friday working together to mark National Coming Out day at both Humber College’s North and Lakeshore Campuses.

The celebration was first observed on 31 years ago during the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in the United States, according to the Human Resources Campaign.

“Coming out still matters,” the organization says. When people know someone is LGBTQ+, “they are far more likely to support equality under the law” and their stories can serve as inspiration, they add.

The Friday event will kick off in Lakeshore Campus’ WEL 201 at 10 a.m. with a “delicious, vegan friendly brunch followed by a discussion session for people to share their coming out stories”.

There will also be a simultaneous event at North where students can join others in the E Concourse before heading into E140 for a National Coming Out Day-themed “QTalk”.

The Resource Centre aims to highlight how they have supported students who have decided to reveal their sexual orientation. The coming-of-age movie Moonlight will be shown at Lakeshore.
