This year marks the 27th anniversary of National Coming Out Day in celebration of coming out -- as queer, gay, bisexual, transgender, lesbian, or allied. It's a great time to remember that coming out is one of the best ways to share aloha and make our families and communities stronger.
Join us on Monday, October 12, at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, for "No H8 In The 808!" -- a resource fair presented by UH LGBT Student Services -- with friends, food, community booths, fun, music, prizes and more!
For more information on how to be a sponsor or have your organization represented, call (808) 956-9250 or just click here. We'll see you there!
SCOTUS & Marriage Equality Panel Discussion Now Online At Olelo.org
Thanks to Olelo Community Media, the SCOTUS and Marriage Equality panel discussion presented by Equality Hawaii and the LGBT Legacy Foundation is now available online.
Organized by Rebecca Copeland, the event featured some of the most important proponents of equality in Hawaii, including: Former Gov. Neil Abercrombie, Justice Steven Levinson (ret.), Dr. David McEwan, Clyde Wadsworth, and Deirdre Marie-Iha, Esq.
The discussion took place at the LGBT Center Waikiki, and explored the impact of the Supreme Court decision, how opponents of equality are trying to circumvent it, and the work ahead to secure justice for all.
