Questioning & Coming Out

Coming out can be a complex and challenging process - the LGBTQ Center and our on-Grounds partners are here to support you. There is no one right way to come out. It’s a lifelong process of being ever more open and true with yourself and others - done in your own way and in your own time. This page includes some resources for students who are exploring their own identity or in the process of coming out. 

If you are questioning you own sexual/romantic and/or gender identity, please know that you can reach out to Alex Winkowski, Program Coordinator - LGBTQ Student Services at alexw@virginia.edu to schedule a meeting or to get connected with additional support on Grounds.
