Happy National Coming Out Day!

Posted By on Mon, Oct 11, 2010 at 10:59 AM


October 11th is National Coming Out Day, an internationally recognized civil awareness day aimed at raising awareness on the importance of coming out. The day was founded in 1988 by Robert Eichberg and Jean O'Leary in celebration of the second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.

At 3:30 p.m. today, the Memphis March for Gay Rights kicks off at the National Civil Rights Museum (460 Mulberry). The march will end at City Hall (125 N. Main) around 4:30 p.m. At 5:30 p.m., LGBT equality advocates will gather for a rally in front of City Hall. Check back here tomorrow for photos of the event.
