In the past few years, so much has changed for the LGBTQ Community. Marriage is being legalized all over the place, and people are learning to speak out about their rights.

    Coming Out “Coming out” is a means of identifying one’s sexual orientation as gay, lesbian, or bisexual.

It also means acknowledging one’s sexual orientation to self. Such disclosure is an ongoing, lifelong process rather than a one-time event. New personal, social, and professional situations require gay men and

To combat this issue, a comprehensive mentoring program needs to be psychologically constructed to address the unique issues surrounding LGBT identification. From there, researchers
