Coming out

[ kuhm-ing out ]

The process where an LGBTQ+ person shares their sexual orientation and/or gender identity with themselves and others. Coming out is not a requirement of being LGBTQ+ in any way, and it is a deeply personal experience. For those who do come out, most find it to be not a singular, one-time experience, but rather a series of coming outs throughout life.
