Poppy Xander Tell your coming out story again, rewrite your story, come out for the first time or just come to celebrate DAVID TAFFET | Senior Staff Writertaffet@dallasvoice.com The first National Coming Out Day event in Dallas took place in the early 1990s.
Human Rights Campaign folks attended a few years later and thought it was such a good idea that they rolled it out to the rest of the country.
Since then, Dallas has celebrated NCOD with smaller events and large Gay Days at the State Fair. DR Hanson said he’s been wanting to do a National Coming Out Day event for a while, so he reached out to Resource Center.
Now with Aloe Johnson and the Sapphiq program, the center’s social network for queer women and non-binary folks, along with Nina Alton and Lauren Veatch, Hanson has put together what should be a fun event to once again celebrate NCOD in Dallas.
