JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville-based LGBTQ+ group JASMYN said it is pride month in the River City, and they are celebrating “Coming Out Day” at their annual breakfast Tuesday morning.
This breakfast marks JASMYN’s 16th annual Coming Out Day Breakfast. The event celebrates the contributions people and volunteers have made within the area’s LGBTQ+ community while celebrating “truth and power, diversity and inclusion, and community.”
