October 11 is National Coming Out Day. This day celebrates the many people who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+ who “come out” (a term stemming from the phrase “come out of the closet”) to friends or family about their sexuality. Visit our celebration station to recognize this big moment with bracelet making, snacks, coffee and more! No registration is required.

Pride Programming is a series of events that creates space for UBC students, faculty and staff to celebrate Pride year-round.
