Coming Out is the term used by LGBT people to describe their experience of discovery, self-acceptance, and openness about their LGBT identity. Having someone to talk to, and getting emotional support, can help people deal with the stresses of coming out. Many people talk to a professional, like their GP, before telling friends and family.
Coming Out Supports:
First Out is a peer support group, run by the LGBT Galway Helpline, for people who need support to come out as LGBT or who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity. Meetings take place on the first Thursday of each month in Teach Solais LGBT+ Resource Centre.
