Out Now’s 2nd Annual National Coming Out Day Soiree a Wondrous and Empowering Success!

Over a hundred community members gathered at Scibelli Theatre at Springfield Technical Community College this past Friday October 7th 2011 to celebrate and honor the local LGBTQ youth community’s many talents—spoken word, dance, art, and some of Springfield’s best Drag Performers. Most importantly, we celebrated and honored who we are.

Chiino Rios, event organizer and Out Now staff member, said the following about the event: “A lot of LGBT youth and youth of color in general are always pushed to the side and kind of forgotten and a lot of people don’t get the chance to shine and show their talents.” Did you attend the soiree?
