'Talk About It' on the 18th Annual National Coming Out Day
'Talk About It' on the 18th Annual National Coming Out Day
The theme for National Coming Out Day, Oct. 11th, 2006, will be - 'Talk About It." The Human Rights Campaign announced the theme today to encourage Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Americans, as well as straight allies, to talk openly and honestly about the lives and the issues that GLBT Americans face under law.

"By being open with the people around us, we begin to change minds and open the hearts of our family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, or even the local mailman," said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. "When you 'Talk About It' with the people in your life, you begin to change minds one at a time, and that's the most lasting kind of change."

In preparation for National Coming Out Day, HRC is now offering free Coming Out Action Kits, that include resources on live and thrive openly - including:

o HRC's newly released Coming Out Guide

o HRC's newly released Guide to Living Openly in Your Place of


o Coming Out Day Posters, Balloons and stickers

The Coming Out Action Kits can be ordered at: (kits will begin to ship during the middle of September, and will arrive in advance of NCOD - October 11th).
