It’s almost that time of the year! Salem State students will be able to participate in National Coming Out Week with a series of events being hosted by our very own Salem State Alliance.
The Salem State Alliance is a student group that offers opportunities to meet socially, plan events, lobby politically and/or find support for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students and their straight allies. The Alliance has sponsored activities for GLBT Awareness Month, Transgender Day of Remembrance, AIDS Awareness, social dances, drag shows, and more. Be sure to look for their open receptions at the beginning of each semester to meet members of the Salem State University GLBT community.
National Coming Out Week (NCOW) will be taking place on October 1, 2018-October 5, 2018. The Alliance will be hosting events throughout the entire week that will be open to Salem State students/faculty, GLBT members and their allies! These events will provide educational aspects that will give resources for queer folk within the Salem community. It will also allow members of the LGBTQIA+ community to come together and share their coming out stories in a safe space, providing a safe and welcoming environment for all involved.
Here is a list of NCOW events:
