Coming Out Day

October 11 is National Coming Out Day.

Every coming out experience is unique. For some it’s a hesitant whisper; for others, it’s a scream when you are in that “right now” moment. Regardless of volume or location, coming out is about sharing personal identity, being proud and, most importantly, being visible. As the Human Rights Campaign says, Coming Out Day is “a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out."

Whether you self-identify as LGBTQAA+ or know someone that does, whatever your connection is to Coming Out Day, Multnomah County Library is a welcoming place for information and book recommendations.
