Thank you for coming to our site to learn more about our project!
The mission of the Coming Out Project at the University of Miami is to recognize the unique strengths and challenges of LGBTQ youth and their families. We are focused on research, intervention, and education to help families communicate and navigate the coming out process. Every parent has a unique response to their child when they come out. Every son or daughter, no matter how young or old, cares how their family members will respond. Our project is designed to learn from and support families at all stages of acceptance or concern in the coming out process, including LGBTQ youth and their parents and siblings.
