11 Oct: Coming Out Day is a time of celebration, reflection and authenticity

Coming Out Day is a time to shine a light on the LGBTQIA+ community, celebrating individuals who have already publicly shared their authentic selves and creating a safe, supportive space for those who have not.

It is celebrated every year on Oct. 11, marking the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1987. First started in the U.S., it’s now recognized in many countries around the world.

We talked to several members of Best Buy’s Pride Employee Resource Group to learn more about what Coming Out Day means to them.
