The purpose of this group is to provide a safe, supportive, and affirming environment where individuals can explore thoughts and feelings around sexual orientation and gender identity.

Members can be individuals who are anywhere in the lifelong “coming-out” process, which includes: people who may be uncertain and are questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity, people who may be coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer, and people who struggle with “being in the closet” at work or school, with friends, and with their families.

Themes and topics that arise in this group may include:

    • Understanding and dealing with feelings of physical, emotional, spiritual, and sexual attraction
    • Issues of gender identity and expression
    • Examining the impact of stereotypes, social and gender roles and expectations
    • Considering the consequences of homophobia, heterosexism, discrimination, and oppression
    • Dealing with issues of vulnerability, guilt and shame
    • Exploring the question, “Who am I?”
    • Intersections of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, and culture
    • Issues around labels, identities, authenticity, disclosure, belonging, rejection, and community
    • “Coming out” process and stages
    • Dealing with fear and isolation
    • Accepting oneself and developing a positive self-image
    • Coming out to family, friends, classmates and co-workers
    • Developing allies and a support network
    • Issues around loss and grief
    • LGBTQ culture and communities
