When we do PrideDay on the2nd Sunday in June, we know we are heading into summer. As soon as Labor Day is upon us, we know summer is over and that its time for OutFest. This OutFest, Sunday, October 9, 2016, will be our 26th celebration of National Coming Out Day. Not only is this the biggest LGBT event of the year in Philadelphia, with upwards of 45,000 participants, it is the largest NCOD event in the world. It is a big neighborhood block party in the heart of the Gayborhood. All businesses do something outside as well as inside. It is free to attend. There is food, drink, entertainment . . . . . . who can ask for more? Your pride coordinators are rolling up their sleeves to do their best and reflect what makes the Philadelphia LGBT community unique! Come and join us.
