The Trevor Project has released a resource to help young people think through the decision to come out, be a straight ally to a friend, or, as the guide is titled, just plain “Coming Out As You.” Read the opening description here and then visit the Trevor Project website to explore the guide in full detail:
Sharing a big part of who you are with other people can be exciting and tough. That’s why The Trevor Project created “Coming Out As You” – a guide to help you explore important parts of who you are.
Inside you will find questions that many young people think about, and blank spaces to brainstorm how you might answer them. There are also two great worksheets that can help you organize your thoughts.
After thinking it through you may decide not to come out – and that’s ok too. Many people choose not to for different reasons.
Population of focus: Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender youth and young adults
