HGLCF at Honolulu Pride™


HRFF is a project of the Honolulu Gay Lesbian Cultural Foundation, which supports Hawaii’s LGBTQ community throughout the year. Be sure to join us at these upcoming 2017 Honolulu Pride™events.


October 11 | National Coming Out Day at UH Manoa Campus Center

Every year on National Coming Out Day, we celebrate coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) or as an ally. On Oct. 11, 2017, we will mark the 29th anniversary of National Coming Out Day.

Coming out – whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied – STILL MATTERS. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other.

Every person who speaks up changes more hearts and minds, and creates new advocates for equality.
