Coming Out & Loving Yourself

Coming out can be a scary thing and often times can be a bit confusing. With a community filled with many labels and sub-labels, finding yourself and where you fit in it, can be a bit challenging. Come join me in a discussion on the process and journey of coming out and how to continue to self-love, self-care, and self-discover during this challenging process. For more information, contact Jeannette at jnetperez@gmail.com.

Also, Check out "The Coming Out Group". Mondays from 5-6:30pm at the Women's Center. A place to meet and gain support while discussing your sexual and/or gender identities in a confidential setting. The group is open in new members for the first 3 week then closes to maintain safe space. For more info. contact Cat Thompson at cathompson@ucsd.edu.
