Public art project encourages GLBT and allies to celebrate Coming Out Day
Public art project encourages GLBT and allies to celebrate Coming Out Day
National Coming Out Day on October 11, a day set aside every year to honor Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and straight Americans living openly and supporting equality, the Human Rights Campaign is proud to announce the participation of Grammy Award winning artist and international singer, P!nk.

P!nk will be featured in the Human Rights Campaign's "Snapshot Photo Project", an online public art project designed to encourage conversation about GLBT people's lives, the issues confronting them, and how all Americans, GLBT or straight, can support equality and fairness.

Anyone can participate by downloading a "Talk About It" sign, and taking a digital picture of themselves with their sign along with friends, family, or co-workers - or anyone that supports equality for GLBT Americans. "Talk About It" is the 2006 National Coming Out Day theme by the Human Rights Campaign.

"P!nk is one of millions of straight Americans who supports fairness and honesty for everyone - GLBT or straight," said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. "This project will show the faces of countless Americans who support openness over painful silence and isolation. Young people who are afraid to come out will see these pictures and faces and know that they are not alone."

The Human Rights Campaign is the largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender political organization with members throughout the country. It effectively lobbies Congress, provides campaign support, and educates the public to ensure that LGBT Americans can be open, honest, and safe at home, at work, and in the community.
