October 01, 2015

MISSOULA – Marking the 27th anniversary of National Coming Out Day, the Student Involvement Network at the University of Montana will host related activities Friday, Oct. 9, in the University Center. National Coming Out Day celebrates the power of identifying with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other diverse groups as an ally.

An open mic event will be held in the UC South Atrium from noon to 1 p.m., followed by a panel on gender and sexual diversity from 1 to 2 p.m. in UC Room 326.

The events are designed to promote gender and sexual diversity, while allowing students to share their own coming out stories, poems or prose.
