I organized an event with the LGBT Alliance on my campus (csun.edu)... we were mostly passing out flyers and everything. We made shirts for this event, and shirts were made for this event by our organization.

In conjunction with National Coming Out Day October 11, the Human Rights Campaign touted two studies (http://www.hrc.org/Template.cfm?Section=Press_Room&CONTENTID=34236&TEMPLATE=/ContentManagement/ContentDisplay.cfm) on advances of gay acceptance. Harris Interactive found that 70 percent of Americans know someone who is gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered and that 83 percent of people who identify as such see themselves as “out” with 92 percent out to close friends, 78 percent to parents, and 66 percent to co-workers.
Also released was “‘Coming Out’ and American Attitudes on Gay Rights,” a report from Hunter College’s Ken Sherrill and Princeton University’s Patrick Egan that looked at data from multiple studies that people who have LGBT family members are 17 percent more likely to support marriage equality than those who do not know someone LGBT. These people with LGBT relatives are also 13 percent more likely to support the right of gay people to adopt kids.
