This year, the UVA LGBTQ Center is acknowledging National Coming Out Day (NCOD) on Sunday, October 11th and Monday, October 12th! Check out this page for all the ways you can participate - there are ways to be involved anonymously, be part of a dialogue, and opportunities to show support!
Submit to our Community Coming Out Word Cloud
The LGBTQ Center is creating a word cloud to post on our social media - all UVA community members are welcome to submit! Anonymously submit 1-3 words that come to mind when you think about "coming out," or when you reflect on your own experiences.

National Coming Out Day Virtual Dialogue
Sunday, October 11th, 6-7pm - Register Here
This annual dialogue provides an opportunity for students to come together and talk about their own personal coming out process and listen to others' experiences. We will not assume level of out-ness at this event. All students are welcome regardless of where they are in their journeys.
