Next month, for the first time, Hiawatha Community Center is organizing a celebration for National Coming Out Day. It’s happening October 11th – still more than two weeks away – but they’re circulating word early not only for calendar-marking, but also because community/LGBTQ-focused organizations are invited to have a presence at the event, according to Hiawatha’s Andrea Sisco. She shared the event announcement:
Join the Hiawatha Community as we celebrate National Coming Out Day. Whether it’s coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) or as an ally, we come together in celebration and advocacy of equality and living openly. Come on over to Hiawatha Community Center on October 11th from 5-7 pm in the Hiawatha gymnasium for activities, live music, performances, food and access to resources to learn more about and demonstrate support for our LGBTQ community.
Those already planning to participate are the Give Back Brass Band and Boom Dance Studios, plus other providers of “activities and resources for all ages,” Andrea says. If your organization wants to be part of it too, you can e-mail Andrea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
