KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Diversity Pride Center and River of Life Church in Kennewick are celebrating Coming Out Day.
River of Life Pastor Janet Pierce says National Coming Out Day has been around for many years in the gay and lesbian community.
Pierce says, "On National Coming Out Day, gay and lesbian people should go out to one person who didn't know that they were gay or lesbian and tell them. If everybody did that people would find out that more of their neighbors are gay or lesbian."
Pierce says she hopes people realize just how many services are available for the gay and lesbian community in the Tri-Cities.
