October 11 is celebrated as the National Coming Out day globally, and this time, Indians have planned a unique campaign to come out to other individuals by rolling up one sleeve of their shirt.
The One Sleeve Up Campaign hopes to help queer people form support groups and make friends at their workplaces, schools, and colleges. “The idea is really simple: you roll up only one of your sleeves this October 11 (National Coming Out Day) and come out to others dressed like you with just a smile or a wink. It’s like a secret global coming out party!” the organizers said.
The campaign is already garnering a positive response on social media.
You can get more details on their Facebook event page.
