Coming Out & Coming into a Circle of Love

Linda Fitzgerald, Worship Associate

National Coming Out Day (October 11) celebrates coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ+). In honor of NCOD, we celebrate the right, the privilege, and the power of having the choice to come out—whether about one’s sexual orientation, gender, or other identities that are hidden and marginalized. But coming out also means having communities that are welcoming and affirming to come into.
