LGBTQ+ History Month provides role models, builds community, and makes a civil rights statement by recognizing and exploring the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer individuals in history.
National Coming Out Day also takes place in October. It is an internationally-observed civil awareness day for coming out and discussion about LGBTQ+ issues. It is observed by members of the LGBTQ+ communities and their supporters on October 11 every year.
