    Quorum's 29th Annual

    National Coming Out Day Luncheon

    "...We will not win our rights by staying quietly in our closets..." (Harvey Milk)

    ABOUT THE LUNCHEON:

    The premier NCOD event in the country, this inspirational and transformational community luncheon gives voice to the power of living openly, honestly and with authenticity at work, in our families, and across our lives. The realities of living an authentic life are deeper than being "out". We all have many layers of identity and we must work together to create a world where people can bring their "whole self" to everything they do.  The National Coming Out Day Luncheon serves as a celebration of who we are individually...and together!

    The tide of history will continue to change only when we honor our identities with pride and live with joy, openness and truth. Coming out (whether as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, ally or any other identity on the spectrum) STILL MATTERS. Every person who speaks up continues to change hearts and minds, and creates new advocates for equality. 

    We hope you will join us as our community celebrates the strength, courage and wisdom of LGBTQ+ and Allied people who have braved their own unique journeys to now live openly and authentically...and with pride.

    EVENT DETAILS: 

    Friday, October 14, 2022 

    Luncheon: 11:45am-1:15pm

    Marketplace Expo opens at 10:00am-2:00pm

    Location: Hyatt Regency Hotel-1300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis

    *Tickets-$60 members/$75 non-members

    *Vendor Tables-$150 members/$175 non-members (includes 1 Luncheon ticket)

    SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES:

    Quorum depends on the generosity of our sponsors to continue to provide the highest level of quality services to our members. Please consider becoming our sponsor of the National Coming Out Day Luncheon.

    COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR ATTENDEES:

    We will be following all local, state, and federal guidelines and recommendations to ensure that we address Covid-19 issues and concerns. 

    Sincerely, 

    Ron Gersdorf, Quorum Board President

    Rebecca Waggoner, Quorum Executive Director
