This October, we are joining our LGBTQIA+ friends and allies to celebrate National Come Out Day (NCOD). This year marks the 29th anniversary of NCOD which celebrates coming out as well as showing support for the LGBTQIA+ community.
29 years ago, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, we first observed National Coming Out Day as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out. One out of every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. For transgender people, that number is only one in 10.
Gay Vegas is joining forces again with downtown’s First Friday event for their 15th anniversary celebration with another LGBTQ themed festival. This event is free and sees an average of 20,000 patrons each month. First Friday’s theme for the month of October is ‘One World Through Art’.
This free all-ages outdoor event features several areas throughout downtown Las Vegas showcasing artists of all calibers and genres. Throughout the festival you can find stages featuring live music, dance areas with DJs, wandering entertainers, various vendors and a variety of food trucks offering the finest in cuisine.
We will be at the First Friday event, this Friday October 6th showing our support. Come join us!
