The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa LGBTQ+ Center joins in celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQ+ communities in Hawaiʻi on National Coming Out Day, Monday, October 11. The center is a co-sponsor of a community resource fair as part of Virtual Honolulu Pride 2021, 5–7 p.m. via Zoom. Learn about LGBTQ+ resources, reconnect with friends and make new connections. Registration is required.

The resource fair will feature more than 40 community organizations, local drag talent including Haus of Del Rey, and a chance to win various prizes. There will also be breakout sessions for various topics and groups, including:

  • Advocacy, law and politics
  • Faith and spirituality
  • Health and wellness
  • Jobs, industry and inclusion
  • Parents and families
  • Social and fun
  • Transgender and Māhū
  • Youth and education

“It can take courage to live with pride in our LGBTQ+ community. Sometimes people might try to make us feel like we don’t have the right to be ourselves. At UH Mānoa you have protections as a member of the LGBTQ+ community,” said Camaron Miyamoto, director of the LGBTQ+ Center.

The center is part Office of Student Equity, Excellence and Diversity and offers direct services and advocacy appointments via Zoom and by phone, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Call (808) 956-9250, visit the website or email
