Coming Out Day 2018

Next Coming Out Day, LGBT+ association DWH/Outsite will organise a series of events, in collaboration with the city of Delft and Delft University of Technology. These activities are meant to show that everyone can be themselves here in Delft.

Coming Out Day is a day on which we give extra attention to the ‘coming out’ of people who do not identify as straight or cisgender (but gay, lesbian, bi or transgender for example). Next to that, for us this day serves to show that the city of Delft, the TU Delft and DWH/Outsite are safe and accepting towards LGBT+ people, and that we encourage coming out.
