In New York the new Bronx LGBTQ Center (the “Center”) announced its National Coming Out Day initiative with a community outreach walk that will begin with a “coming out vigil” on Friday, October 11th at 6P. Every year on National Coming Out Day we celebrate coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, or as an ally. This year marks the 25th anniversary of National Coming Out Day with a timely theme "Coming Out Still Matters." Tym Moss, the Center's President stated, “It's important that we let those who are struggling with their sexual & gender identities know that they are not alone & that there is support out there for them. We have been through this struggle & it is a never-ending process but one that empowers & strengthens us each & every time we come out.” The event will begin with LGBTQ individuals describing their own coming out experiences & relay the importance of why coming out of the closet still matters. Scheduled to speak are award- winning journalist Tanya Domi, Hector Santiago & the Center's secretary, Peter C. Frank, among others. Shortly before 7P the assembly will begin moving east on Fordham Road & walk toward Fordham University, engaging the community in discussions & distributing helpful literature about coming out, as well as the new Center & its resource. The walk will end no later than 8P.
