National Coming Out Day is October 11. The Rainbow Center is excited to announce that this year we will be celebrating by having Alok Vaid-Menon on campus!

ALOK (they/them) is a gender non-conforming performance artist, writer, educator, and entertainer. Their eclectic sense of style, political comedy, and poetic challenge to the gender binary have been internationally renowned. Alok was recently the youngest recipient of the Live Works Performance Act Award granted to ten performance artists across the world. They have been featured on HBO, MTV, The Guardian, National Geographic, The New York Times, and more.

Additionally, this event is the perfect time to pick up a FREE Rainbow Center National Coming Out Day t-shirt, featuring a design that commemorates our 20th year at UConn.
