Happy National Coming Out Day

I’ve seen so many beautiful Facebook statuses today asserting who we are and who we support.  It brings a smile to my face.  I helped our campus group put on a Coming Out as Yourself Carnival and it was a success. 

Everyone from the Utah State Sheep and Goat Club the the Pagan Alliance, the College Democrats, and SHAFT (Secular Humanists, Atheists, and Free Thinkers) organized their own booths, each concocting their own carnival games.  The most popular booths won gift certificates.  As this was a rather successful event, we’d encourage anybody planning a National Coming Out Day event to consider building on this idea.

That salt and pepper picture is great.

I agree, I really liked seeing all the support on FB from different people. Not only gay friends, but people that support equality as well. I wish we had more days like this. :)
