LGBTQ+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual, and Questioning (also known as Queer). The plus sign at the end allows for letters not in the acronym to still be identified, as they are just as important. This page is dedicated to providing specific resources for those seeking more information about the LGBTQ+ community.

Coming Out

Coming out is a scary process. There is no 'right' way, time, or place to come out. It is no one's decision on how or when to, except the individual who is deciding. Coming out to family and friends can help an individual feel more secure and understood, as it is an important part of life. As a family member, your job is to be as supportive and curious as they are.
