Coming Out To Your Loved Ones
Coming out to your friends and/or family is a big decision as it means you have accepted your orientation and are now ready to share this with those closest to you. Keeping in mind that this must be a sensitive decision, here are some points that might help you plan for the discussion.
LGBT - Inclusion at the Workplace
The world of work in recent times is choosing to embrace a culture of Inclusion. Contrary to earlier times, most organizations in India are committed to promoting an inclusive environment for all regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation. There is an atmosphere of greater openness and acceptance of LGBT people which in turn has led to more individuals deciding to “come out” and talk about their sexual orientation at the workplace. As colleagues or managers, it is important for us to be aware of our own attitudes and reactions towards this and ensure that an environment of acceptance is provided.
LGBT - Responding to your loved one
In recent times, homosexuality has become more open and been gaining more acceptance. However hearing that a family member is gay, can still be a difficult experience, for both the family and the one opening up.
