“Coming out” means telling your friends, family and colleagues about your sexual orientation or gender identity, and also accepting this yourself.
Coming out can be challenging and people may react in different ways. It may help to talk to a counsellor or support group before or after coming out.
At Luton Sexual Health you can speak to a health mentor or health adviser, who will be able to tell you what support is available.
There is also information on Coming Out from Stonewall that you can access.
