Cake will be served.
October 11 is recognized across the United States as National Coming Out Day, commemorating the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights that occurred in 1987. The March caused so much movement that on the first anniversary of the March, National Coming Out Day was established as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out. International Pronouns Day was established in 2018 as an effort to make acknowledging, respecting and educating about the importance of pronouns.
