Being an Ally
Your support can make a major impact on an individual before, during, and after their coming out process.
There are a variety of reasons in which someone might decide to come out to you. They may have chosen to come out to you because you are a:
- close friend or family member and they want to have an honest and genuine relationship with me.
- person who will be understanding and accepting; and therefore trust you with this very personal information.
- person who they’ve decided to come out to before they really know you in order to establish an honest relationship from the beginning.
