About the Event
"Coming Out Day (Sunday, Oct. 11), marks the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, which first took place on Oct. 14, 1979. The second march occurred on Oct. 11, 1987.
Facebook Watch's special, which will stream on Friday, Oct. 9, will honor the 32-year-long tradition of supporting individuals who identify as LGBTQIA and celebrate their journey of coming out. Coming Out 2020 will not only recognize coming out stories, but will also support those who may be currently coming out, as well as those who may not yet be able to share their gender identity or sexual orientation.
Lovato and France will be joined by LGBTQIA activists, allies, entertainers, and others from around the world as they share powerful and candid testimonials about their coming out journeys, and providing inspiration and support. Stars like Angelica Ross, Law Roach, Nico Tortorella, Ruby Rose, Leiomy Maldonado, Trixie Mattel and Tyler Oakley are set to appear." (1)
"In addition to the Facebook Watch special, Facebook and Instagram will launch a variety of features and resources for National Coming Out Day. Those will include new Instagram Guides created in partnership with PFLAG, It Gets Better Project, and The Tegan and Sara Foundation offering tips on topics such as safety and support for those going through their coming out journey; a new Coming Out Day Sticker Pack on the Facebook app; and an animated Coming Out Day-inspired Facebook logo that will link to a custom hashtag feed for #ComingOut2020 that will surface relevant content and group recommendations."
