Coming Out Day
Kenyon's campus will be bedecked with the colors of the rainbow on October 11, National Coming Out Day. Balloons, buttons, signs, and T-shirts will affirm the College's commitment to support all members of the community, regardless of their sexual orientation. The observance, which is organized in part by Unity House and ALSO (Allied Sexual Orientations), falls on the third anniversary of the dedication of Unity House, the College's first resource center for the GLBTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community on campus.
A parade, complete with signs, flags, and beads, will begin at Old Kenyon and end at Unity House, east of the Bexley Apartments. Following the parade, Unity House will host a "Coming Out Comfort Zone," with food and drinks. T-shirts and buttons will bear the message, "A closed mind is a wonderful thing to lose."
