Coming out for a student at a college or university can be challenging, especially if you are no longer immediately located near the student.
For families, the PFLAG organization (Parents and Families of Lesbians and Gays) is an excellent organization that focuses on support, education, advocacy and information for family members. You can reach them at www.pflag.org.
In addition, here are two links to sites that talk about what to expect now that your student is coming out and may answer some questions for you.
In addition, this link is a PDF file of a brochure for families and friends when a student has come out to you:Here!
