In case you are unaware, it is Coming Out Week on campus. There are several events happening on campus surrounding this theme. In the spirit of that, our Tuesday brown bag will feature a panel of students, faculty, and staff who will discuss their own coming out stories as LGBTQ-identified or as allies to the queer community. Not sure what coming out is? Wikipedia - a well-known and well-trusted source - tells us that coming out (of the closet) is the disclosure of one's sexual orientation or gender identity. The purpose of Coming Out Week is to encourage individuals to be open about their identities, and also an attempt to create a safe environment for people to come out in.
Also, this week marks the beginning of our brown bag bake sale in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. During all the October brown bags, we will sale an assortment of baked goods ranging from $0.50-$1.00. All profits will go to SHARE.
