On Friday Oct. 11, the Eastern Pride Center celebrated National Coming Out Day. This event was held as a safe space for people to talk about their coming out stories and socialize with other people in the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. They also had an option to anonymously submit their coming out stories if they did not want to share them openly with the community. The celebration also included an area for students to make friendship bracelets that corresponded with the flag that they identified with, or to just make bracelets for fun.
