'Coming Out' support group begins Oct. 19 at Women's Center

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The joys and concerns surrounding the process of 'coming out' as a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender is the focus of an eight-week discussion group beginning Tuesday, Oct. 19 at the University of Iowa Women's Resource and Action Center (across from the Iowa Memorial Union).

"Coming out is a life-long process," says Keri Neblett, support group coordinator at the Women's Center. "The 'Coming Out' discussion group emphasizes education and individual integrity. Participants will not be pressured to come out in all areas of their lives. Group members will have the freedom to define themselves, their sexuality and their spirituality in a community that maintains all confidentialities," Neblett adds.

Please call (319) 335-1486 for more information or to register.
