Coming Out is a gradual process and is different from person to person. It's neither straight-forward nor quick, and it's a journey that needs friends. Being comfortable with your personal identity is the first step to coming out. On this page, we'll refer you to a number of different resources. Coming Out can be stressful and difficult, but many believe the rewards are worth it.
Free counseling services for all students of ETSU. Additionally, there is a Trans Support Group that meets throughout the year, but it is asked that you do not publish where exactly that the group meets. People who are questioning/trans/genderfluid/etc. and are interested in being a part of the Trans Support Group can call or email the Counseling Center. Ask to speak with Beth Evelyn Barber.
