What's National Coming Out Day?

National Coming Out Day (NCOD) is an annual civil awareness day internationally observed on October 11th to celebrate coming out and to raise awareness of the LGBT community and civil rights movement. The process of coming out involves self-disclosure of one's sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

National Coming Out Day is observed in many countries, including Australia, Canada, Croatia, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
