National Coming Out Day Celebration

“Come out” and celebrate National Coming Out Day with the Des Moines Civil and Human Rights Commission’s LGBT Advisory Council!

We will read aloud the city of Des Moines’ National Coming Out Proclamation, listen to music from the Des Moines Gay Men’s Chorus, and honor the bravery of our LGBTQ people in our city.

Senator Matt McCoy will dedicate this event to Donna Red Wing, a fierce LGBTQ activist and Des Moines Civil and Human Rights Commissioner who is currently fighting aganist cancer.

We will gather by the Keith Haring Scultpure. Haring designed the original National Coming Out Day Logo in 1988.

Be sure to use #ComingOutDSM throughout the day and event!
