National Coming Out Day observed at IVCC

IV Leader Staff

National Coming Out Day is Friday, Oct. 11, but since IVCC will not have classes that day, National Coming Out Day will be observed on Thursday, Oct. 10.

That week, the Diversity Team and the Gay/Straight Alliance will open room C-316 for enrolled students to view “Fish Out of Water,” a film that dissects the seven Bible verses used to condemn homosexuality and justify marriage discrimination.

The film will be viewed at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 9 in Room C-316.

The Gay/Straight Alliance also will also be selling “Gay? Fine by Me” T-shirts in the lobby several days that week.

If you would like to purchase a t-shirt or volunteer to help sell the shirts, contact Renee Prine in the Counseling Center or call her at 815-224-0366.

The Gay/Straight Alliance has several meetings scheduled during the semester as well.
