October 11, is National Coming Out Day the internationally observed day to celebrate
and to raise awareness of the LGBTQ community and the LGBTQ civil rights movement.
National Coming Out Day was founded in 1988 by Robert Eichberg, a psychologist from
New Mexico, and Jean OLeary, an openly gay political leader from Los Angeles. The
date of October 11 coincides with the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington
for Lesbian and Gay Rights.
COCC is committed to providing a safe and respectful learning and working environment
for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students and colleagues, and
their allies. Join with the campus faculty, staff, and students who are coming out
in support this effort.
