Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine student group organizes National Coming Out Day event
2017 Sep 14
On Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., Physicians Representing Inclusivity, Diversity and Equality (PRIDE), a student group at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (Geisinger Commonwealth), invites the public to join them in celebrating National Coming Out Day. This year marks the 29th anniversary of a day set aside to encourage people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) to live openly as their true selves. The student-organized event will expand the celebration to include any person who has had to summon the courage to reveal an identity they have kept hidden from friends and family.
