2022 National Coming Out Day Dinner

HGSC holds in-person celebration of community 

On October 11, 2022, HGSC held its first-ever National Coming Out Day Dinner at the Harvard Faculty Club. Guest speakers included Keith Boykin JD '92 and Sally Kohn. We were also joined by Philip Lovejoy, outgoing executive director of the Harvard Alumni Association.

It was HGSC's first in-person dinner since 2019. The celebration of community was attended by close to 150 alumni, faculty, staff, and students. (Click on the image to view the event album.)

The event capped a full day of activities that included a National Coming Out Day Forum at the Institute of Politics, its first ever to commemorate the day.

The dinner was generously sponsored by The Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School; HKS Alumni Relations; The Open Gate Foundation; Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at HKS; and Mike Dillon.
