October 11 marks National Coming Out Day, a day for celebrating pride in people who identify as LGBTQIA and their allies and honoring the freedom for people to be their true selves.

This past Sunday, October 8, marked the 26th annual celebration of OutFest Philly. Coinciding with National Coming Out Day, OutFest Philly is a day-long celebration of LGBTQ+ pride and seeks to raise awareness of issues directly affecting the community. Among the numerous participating organizations, students in the Out4STEM Internship Program were on hand in the Gayborhood to take part in the festivities and raise awareness of the Program and health-related topics.

The Out4STEM Program aims to provide Philadelphia’s LGBTQ+ youth with healthcare and STEM-oriented instruction, mentorship, academic support, and college/career preparation in an inclusive, safe space.
