PRESS RELEASE ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2022: SAVE-THE-DATE for our LGBTQ+ Sports Recruiting Event on National Coming Out Day (Tuesday, October 11, 2022) at Boxers Hell’s Kitchen from 6pm to 9pm. OOBNYC is proud to partner with Boxers new location in Hell’s Kitchen (735 Ninth Avenue, not the old location at 742 Ninth Avenue still listed on the website) to produce an LGBTQ+ sports recruiting event on National Coming Out Day (Tuesday, October 11, 2022). It has been over 2 years since Hugh Hysell’s TheMenEvent “Jockathon” in March 2020 right before COVID lockdown. Our National Coming Out Day event is an opportunity for all of the organizations in the network to be reunited in the same room again. The National Coming Out Day/LGBTQ+ History Month program during the event will commemorate the rich history of LGBTQ+ amateur sports & recreation, including the 40th Anniversary of the first Gay Games held in San Francisco in 1982, and the fourth Gay Games held here in New York in 1994 for the 25th Anniversary of Stonewall.
