LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – Students across the campus and country celebrated National Coming Out Day on Monday by holding events at Scruggs and parading across campus to celebrate the pride of the LGBTQ community.
Prof. Mara Arugete led students through several areas of the campus, including the distributing of free candy and stickers to professors and students. The annual event is designed to inform the community about the issues that LGBTQ students face and allow students to express their sexuality.
National Coming Out Day began in 1988 to celebrate and bring awareness to LGBTQ issues.
