Robert eichsberg and jean o'leary founded national coming out day on october 11, 1988, marking the anniversary of the 1987 march on washington for lesbian and gay rights.

Across the nation, workshops, events and rallies are held and aimed at highlighting the fact that l-g-b-t-q people are everywhere.

And in crossroads, l-g-b-t-q victoria has celebrated the day with a b-b-q open to anyone interesting in attending and sharing their story in safe space - since 2007.

We celebrate national coming out day because it's important for people to be able to feel comfortable and come out, come out to their families, especially with all the bullying going on in today's world, all the discrimination, and so this event is for everyone to feel welcomed.

They are basically able to be free to be who they want.

Flora hernandez, president of l-g-b-t victoria, says she looks forward to organizing the b-b-q each year.

It's something we've been doing since 2007.

I feel it's very important to have these events for people.

Me personally, it gives me great - it's just, you know - helping other people - it's just awesome to help other people.

The b-b-q starts at 1 pm and ends at 6 pm saturday at ted b reed park, located at salem road and country lane.

Hernandez says all are welcome.

Victoria has a lot of diversity and people should be able to come out and be themselves and know that there is an actual lgbt group in victoria that's willing to support and help people out.

Come out, it's basically for everyone, family-friendly, there will be games, food.

So whoever wants to come out, please come out and join us.

In victoria, i'm carolina astrain, for your hometown news.

It's fire safety prevention week.
