Mark your calendars; you won’t want to miss next month’s Out for Good, a dinner and celebration of National Coming Out Day. The fundraiser, benefiting The Montrose Center, celebrates coming out and the empowerment of our community, and will take place in the Crystal Ballroom at the historic Rice Hotel downtown. Jessica Frinsco and Margarita Perez are honorary chairs, while Lauren Kelly and Chad Pitt of Mix 96.5 will emcee the evening.
The holiday was started by Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Leary on October 11, 1988, to celebrate the second gay march in Washington DC a year earlier. It’s often used as a day for LGBT youth to come out to their parents, friends, and co-workers. And, of course, it’s a great day celebrate how far we’ve come. INFO: montrosecenter.org —Marene Gustin
