We got word that the Brooklyn Community Pride Center is holding an event today in honor of National Coming Out Day. As the event involves Robicellis cupcakes AND gay ppl (two of our fave things on the planet), we couldn't resist passing along the scoop. But yo: you don't even have to be gay to participate!:
During “Coming Out for Cupcakes,” individuals pledge to “come out” about an element of their lives they had previously kept hidden-- big or small. Individuals who pledge $5 or more will receive a fabulous cupcake, in addition to 5 percent off any purchases at Re/Dress during the event hours. Participants will write their secrets on rainbow cards, and these cards will be used to create a visual reminder of everything that people must come out about in our society.
October 11 is celebrated internationally as “National Coming Out Day.” The date comes from the anniversary of a March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, and is celebrated in all 50 states and several additional countries. The day is recognized to provide awareness of the number of LGBT individuals in the lives of everyone, and to remind LGBTQ individuals that they are not alone in their struggles .
All this shit will be going down at Re/Dress Brooklyn (109 Boerum Place, in Cobble Hill) from 4pm to 7pm.
