Coming Out is a gradual process and is different from person to person. It's neither straight-forward nor quick, and it's a journey that needs friends. Being comfortable with your personal identity is the first step to coming out. On this page, we'll refer you to a number of different resources. Coming Out can be stressful and difficult, but many believe the rewards are worth it.
