Finding your identity is a big part of becoming your own person. For many people, this happens as a young adult in college. Trinity College strives to be a safe and accepting place to explore who you are.

It is important to remember that there is no ‘correct’ way to come out. What is important is that you feel comfortable in your exploration and know that you are always worthy of respect and autonomy.
