Celebrate National Coming Out Day
on Saturday, October 11th!
Join Build Our Center and many community groups and businesses in celebrating the 26th annual National Coming Out Day!
West Street Market
(On West Street between 1st and 2nd Streets)
Family friendly 2:00 – 8:00 pm ~ Adult oriented 8:00 – 10:00 p.m.
What would a celebration be without an after party?! Join us at 5 Star Saloon at 10pm!
Special performances at 11pm!
This day of celebration marks the anniversary of the March on Washington for LGBT rights over 26 years ago. Not only does it stand as a reminder of all those who came out and stood up for our rights, but it is also a time to provide encouragement for others to come out, while promoting awareness and acceptance!
Sharing your story helps to put a relatable face to the challenges that many LGBT individuals face in coming out. HRC (Human Rights Campaign) says that one in every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. When people are able to relate to and understand the personal struggles of someone they know, then they are more likely to support equality for LGBT individuals.
The celebration this year will be a mini-festival at West Street Market. There will be entertainment throughout the day, along with many organizations and businesses that will be promoting resources. Interactive activities will take place around the plaza, along with opportunities to share Coming Out stories in writing and on video.
This is an opportunity for questioning and recently out LGBT individuals and their friends and family to meet supportive organizations and businesses in the community!

The second Wednesday of the month we will descend as a gaggle of gays, queers, homos, and all those in between on some awesome, unsuspecting bar or event, turning it into a queer space for a couple of hours.
Our goal is to promote acceptance through our out and open support of these places!
We’ll descend on a bar, restaurant, coffee shop, or allied business to show our support, spend our money, and create a safe space!
We alternate between a Bar and an establishment that serves booze and coffee.
