Tired of being "in the closet?"
Need someone to talk to about the "coming-out" process?
Want support and information for a friend?
In 2005 Encouraging Respect of Sexualities, Trinity 's gay/straight alliance, and the Women's Center launched a new service for Trinity's LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Intersex) students called the Coming-Out Network.
The Coming -Out Network is composed of undergraduate students who are trained to provide guidance and offer support to their peers who are going through the coming-out process at Trinity. They can also provide referrals and talk about resources that are available on- and off-campus for on-going support.
All Coming-Out Network students are also Trinity Safe Zone Program members!
The Safe Zone program is Trinity's visible support network of LGBT & Ally students, faculty, and staff.
After completing a Safe Zone Training Session each member can provide safe spaces on campus for Trinity's LGBTQI students to find someone to talk to, basic information, support, referrals, and resources.
For more information about joining the Trinity Safe Zone program please contact Crystal Nieves at the Trinity Queer Resource Center. QRC@trincoll.edu | 860-987-6273
