National Coming Out Day
October 11
National Coming Out Day was inspired by a single march. 500,000 people participated in the March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights on October 11, 1987, generating momentum to last for 4 months after the march had ended. During this period, over a hundred LGBTQ+ identifying individuals gathered outside Washington, DC, and decided on creating a national day to celebrate coming out – this began on the 1st anniversary of their historic march. Learn more about National Coming Out Day here. 


LGBTQ+ Alliance Meeting

International Pronouns Day
October 19
The Center for Diversity and Inclusion supports and endorses International Pronouns Day which seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity and aligns directly with our Jesuit value of Cura Personalis. Together, we can transform our campus and communities to celebrate people’s multiple and intersecting identities.
