Coming Out Day Video Stories & Resource Fair
Celebrate the diversity of our LGBTQ+ community. Inspire others by coming out to share your story on National Coming Out Day. The Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation, along with the UH Manoa LGBTQ+ Center and the Hawaii Health & Harm Reduction Center, will host a special online project for National Coming Out Day on October 11 to encourage people to come out, and to celebrate those who have.
We’ll be offering a platform for individuals to share their coming out stories with short videos, presenting interviews with influencers who have come out, and co-producing an online LGBTQ+ Community Resource Fair with the UH Manoa LGBTQ+ Center.
As the Human Rights Campaign says, “Coming out still matters! Our stories can be powerful to each other, and every person who speaks up changes more hearts and minds, and creates new advocates for equality.” More details will be coming soon. For questions about the Resource Fair contact Camaron Miyamoto.
