National Coming Out day is held annually on October 11 and encourages people to take the next step in their coming out process, and commemorates the 1987 National March on Washington for LGBTQ equality. UIS celebrates with the Closet Door on the Quad. Participants are encouraged to walk through the door and tell their coming out stories or why they are allies to the LGBTQA population.

This past October we gave out around 500 "No-H8" t-shirts that declared what people thought about hate and encouraged people to wear their shirts to the rally on the Quad.
