Coming out

So you finally have decided it is time to tell others about your sexuality.  However, this can be a daunting and often challenging process.  Where do you start and how do you do it?

It is usually helpful to talk with someone you trust.  You might want to talk to a friend, a qualified counsellor, nurse or doctor. If they don't understand or can't help then try someone else; don't give up. You are too important. There are many excellent resources available on campus and in the community.
