Coming Out Day Event Oct. 11

The Safe Zone committee is excited to announce our Coming Out Day event on Wednesday, Oct. 11, from noon to 3 p.m. The event will be on Campus Walk in front of Lee Hall (rain location: UC 2nd floor).

Coming Out Day is a national day of celebration, during which we recognize the bravery involved in coming out as LGBTQ+ or an ally. We will be encouraging all community members to engage in an activity geared toward increasing inclusion and fostering thoughtful discussion. We will also be giving out Safe Zone keychains (while supplies last), answering questions about Safe Zone, and providing resources to the campus community. We hope you will be able to join us!

Please email Dr. Laura Wilson (lwilson5@umw.edu) with any questions. Also, check out our webpage at bit.ly/UMWsafezone for more information and helpful resources!
