National Coming Out Day (originally established in 1988) is not only a day to share experiences of discovering one’s own LGBTQ+ identity, but also a reminder that there is still so much more work to do in terms of acceptance and advocacy on behalf of this community. For some, coming out may be a liberating experience. For others, this can be dangerous and significantly impact one’s mental or physical health due to lack of support from family, friends, or even places of education or employment. If you are looking for more resources in your own community for support, below is a list of resources that includes safe professional mental health, medical providers, support groups, online resources and much more.
