Life Around the Closets: Coming Out/Not Coming Out Experiences of LGBTQIA Individuals

October 3, 2017, 8:00 am

Coming out can be a rebirth and freedom or a constant struggle and hardship. For some, it is a dream not yet lived. It is not a moment but a process that we live and experience throughout our lives.  October is LGBTQIA+ History & National Coming Out Month. To celebrate the struggles of those who are out and not out, the Steven J. Schochet Endowment for GLBT Studies, in collaboration with the Gender and Sexuality Center for Queer and Trans Life at the University of Minnesota will host an art exhibit from October 3rd-4th 2017. Five closet doors, painted in different colors of the rainbow, in different shapes and sizes will be displayed on the Washington Pedestrian Bridge on campus. Each closet door will carry one coming out/not coming out narrative from a University of Minnesota student.

If you would like your narrative to be displayed on these closet doors, please contact Qais Munhazim @ munha009@umn.edu. The deadline for submitting the narratives is September 15th 2017.
