National Coming Out Day

This National Coming Out Day, ReconcilingWorks wants to lift up those in our movement who have been out for decades and those who may be coming out today.

Every year on National Coming Out Day, we celebrate coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or as an ally. Today folks from all over the nation are celebrating the 25th anniversary of National Coming Out Day as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out. One out of every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. For transgender people, that number is one in 10.

And coming out STILL MATTERS. When people in our communities and congregations know someone

who is LGBT, they are far more likely to support equality both in society and in church.

Beyond that, our stories as people of faith are powerful as we seek to live out our discipleship with authenticity.

ReconcilingWorks invites every person to tell their story as minds are changed and hearts are transformed.
