Fall 2021 Course Offering
NEW COURSE OFFERING-Join us this fall for an opportunity to learn more about LGBTQ+ folx and the intersectionality of various social identities. This course is the first of a two-part course offering that count towards general education and the new Social Justice degree for transfer.
National Coming Out Day is an annual event celebrated on October 11th, which marks the anniversary of the 1987 March on Washington for Gay and Lesbian Rights. To celebrate this event, Allan Hancock College will host a virtual production of The Coming Out Monologues. The purpose of this production is to present the many aspects of the coming out process as experienced by the various members of the LGBTQ+ community. We wish to include coming out stories from numerous backgrounds and perspectives, including advocates, allies, parents, friends and persons who identify within the LGBTQ+ spectrum of identities.
First produced at UC Riverside in 2007, The Coming Out Monologues are inspired by The Vagina Monologues. Since the first performance, The Coming Out Monologues have been performed at universities across the country.

- Anyone who identifies along the spectrum of LGBTQ+ identities.
