National Coming Out Day - Oct. 11

Come out and enjoy a full day of events for Stony Brook's first Annual National Coming Out Day, including the library exhibit.

The library is hosting an exhibit for National Coming Out Day on Oct.11 - a time for everyone gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and straight - to talk openly and honestly about who they are and why LGBT equality matters to them. The exhibit is located in the Galleria of the Frank Melville Library.

Kristen Nyitray, Head of Special Collections, and Jason Torre, University Archivist, have put together an exhibit using archival material from the Gay and Lesbian Community Collection and the University Archives. This includes memorabilia and materials from the LI Pride Parade and also the LGBT community on campus.

For more information on the collection, go to the Special Collections, Gay and Lesbian Community Collection site.

Here's a great contribution from two lesbian women to commemorate the National Coming Out Day :
Coming Out in an Evangelical Church - Wow!

You can also go directly to FaithoftheAbomination.com. Their story will be told in a documentary film. I feel this will be groundbreaking for the GLBT community.
