Coming Out

The Advocate covers everything you need to know about coming out, including the latest stories on public figures who come out as LGBT. The process of coming out varies for each person. Some lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people come out to friends and family at an early age, while others lead a more private life. Activists such as Harvey Milk advocated for all LGBT people to come out of the closet, in order to help increase visibility of the cause and sway the hearts and minds of the American public. For many, the process is difficult and ongoing throughout a lifetime.
