Diversity and Community Engagement joined in Wednesday’s observance of the 29th annual National Coming Out Day, celebrating the LGBTQ community and people who wanted to come out as allies in support. Student leaders were stationed at a table outside Penn College’s Keystone Dining Room stocked with various pins, pride flags and snacks, and information about the coming-out process.
