The newly formed Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Ally Caucus will be holding a “Coming Out” membership drive to coincide with the 25th anniversary of National Coming Out Day. The party is Friday at 6 p.m. at Solid in Downtown Boise. National Coming Out day is celebrated by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies. This year’s theme is “Coming Out Still Matters.” “Holding our Coming Out Party on National Coming Out Day is deliberate and symbolic,” said LGBTA Caucus Vice Chair Matthew Montoya in a news release. “Our intent is to raise awareness of the basic civil rights people are working worldwide to secure for the LGBT community, and to promote awareness of LGBT families being able to live honest and open lives. The principles behind this day align perfectly with our mission statement and the goals we are working toward.” The LGBTA Caucus is one of six interest-group caucuses in the Idaho Democratic Party/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman.
