History of National Coming Out Day
National Coming Out Day was founded in 1988 to mark the anniversary of the national march in Washington for Lesbian and Gay rights. Robert Eichberg, a New Mexico psychologist, and Jean O’Leary, an openly gay political activist wanted to highlight the power behind coming out. O’Leary was also the head of the National Gay Rights Advocates at the time.
