Women's Center offers eight-week workshop on 'coming out'

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The Women's Resource and Action Center will offer "Coming Out," an eight-week discussion group beginning Monday, Aug. 28. The group will explore the joys and concerns surrounding the process of coming out.

"Coming out as lesbian, gay, or bisexual is a life-long process," says Keri Neblett, support group coordinator at the Center. "The discussion group places an emphasis on education and individual integrity. Members have the freedom to define themselves, their sexuality, and their spirituality in a community that will maintain all confidentialities."

The group will meet at the Center, 130 N. Madison Street. To register and get the meeting schedule, call (319) 335-1486.
