New Coming Out Display at Q Center. First time it has left the Nike Campus!

Think this is powerful? Think of the impact the Q Center has on our community.

Q Center is pleased and proud to present “Coming Out”, a display of history created by our friends at Nike’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender & Friends Employee Network.

The idea of coming out was introduced in 1869 by the German homosexual rights advocate Karl Heinrich Ulrichs as a means of emancipation. Claiming that invisibility was a major obstacle toward changing public opinion, he urged homosexuals themselves to come out. It would take another 100 years for the GLBT Movement to take off.

Q Center would like to thank Nike for lending this exhibition, and Q Center board member Aaron Hall for sponsoring its display. It will be on view in the north room of Q Center through August 1, 2010.
