City College will celebrate National Coming Out Day Oct. 11 with an open mic for students to share coming out stories, as well as a screening of the film “Transamerica.”

“Oct. 11 is a day for people to recognize the difficulties associated with coming out, and also a day for the LGBTQA community to celebrate and welcome those coming out,” said City College English professor Steve Cirrone, the event’s facilitator and former adviser for the discontinued LGBTQA Club.

National Coming Out Day is an annual celebration of coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning or allied. Wednesday’s observance will mark the 29th anniversary of the national observance.

The event in the Cultural Awareness Center will open with a discussion about being transgender in America with guest speakers Gina and August Webb from 10–11:30 a.m. After a refreshment break, an open mic will be held at 12:15 p.m. for people to share their coming out stories.
