1990, October * GLLOW: National Coming Out Day campaign

A major National Coming Out Day campaign is organized in cooperation with GLLOW. Posters appear across campus and an article in Imprint discusses being gay and out on campus. Similar campaigns are run the following two years under the title “BGLAD” Days (Bisexual Gay and Lesbian Awareness Days). The campaigns feature faculty-specific advertisements.
