'Coming Out' support group to begin meeting Oct. 12

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- "Coming Out," an eight-week discussion group that begins Monday, Oct. 12, will explore the joys and concerns surrounding the process of coming out as a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. The support group is sponsored by the Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC) at the University of Iowa.

"Coming out is a life-long process," says Meg Hammes, support group coordinator at the Women's Center. "So this group places an emphasis on individual integrity without pressure to come out in all areas of the members' life or follow a script. The group gives members the freedom to define themselves, their sexuality, and their spirituality in a community that will maintain all confidentialities."
