Coming Out In College (Baltimore Gay Life

College is a time to explore new interests, discover new places, and meet new people. For a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) student, it can also be an opportunity to come out to peers who may be more accepting than their own family members or friends back home. Coming out in college can be a liberating experience because it can build self-esteem and help forge genuine relationships and connections with other LGBT students. For the first time in their lives, students feel like they can finally be themselves. But, along with the freedom that coming out can provide comes the fear that, even in a more liberal environment, the student may be rejected for their sexuality. Here are some suggestions to help LGBT students disclose their sexuality to peers.

Coming From Where I’m From (Baltimore Gay Life

A lot of us have questions about relationships, coming out and family issues, but we just don’t feel comfortable talking to the people in our circle. Fears of being judged and mistreated are enough to stop any of us from seeking the advice we need. I know. I’ve been there. I didn’t have a space where I was free to ask whatever I wanted and receive great feedback, but you do. This article is dedicated to you. You can ask absolutely anything you want from “how to tell her you like her” to “where to tie the knot.” You can even write in anonymously. It’s totally up to you. There are no limits. In each issue you will receive advice from yours truly and maybe even realize that there is someone else out there in your exact situation. If I haven’t been there, I know someone who has. Coming from where I’m from, that means a lot.
