“Come Out, Speak Out” at National Coming Out Week

With the theme, “It’s ok to Bee…,” National Coming Out Week at Penn State allows students the opportunity to “Come Out, Speak Out” within their campus community.

This event serves as an outlet for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allied members of the community to show those searching to find their sexual or gender identity that there is a network of support available to them at the university. It also is a means to spark a spirit of activism within Penn State to take up charge in the queer movement that is sweeping through this country.

On Tuesday night, there will be a panel-lead discussion at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center on how to balance sexual identity and religious beliefs. Wednesday at noon there will be a Coming Out Rally at the HUB with keynote speaker, Chaz Bono, giving a presentation later that night.

Thursday night there will be a candle lit vigil for those who have taken their life because of struggles with their sexuality at the Allen Street Gates. And to end the week on a high note, Friday night there will be a student drag show where Penn State will flaunt its true colors.

So chant proudly — We Are, Penn State Not Straight!
