HRSI to Host Coming Out Days

The Human RightS Initiative (HRSI) is hosting a celebration of the Coming Out Day on October 10-11. It is an annual LGBTQI awareness day when we celebrate coming out as a member of the LGBTQI community or as an ally, and promote a safe world for LGBTQI people to live truthfully and openly.

‘Coming Out’ Photography Project

Are you someone who has personal experience of coming out or having someone come out to you, or who simply wants to show support as allies? Share your story! Volunteers will take your picture and listen to your story. The pictures and stories will be published on HRSI’s Facebook page from October 10.

All CEU community members (students, faculty and staff) and friends are welcome. If interested, check the availability of volunteers on the event’s webpage and contact them directly to arrange a meet-up.
