The college years are a time when many students begin to sort out their values and figure out who they are. It is not unusual for students to question their sexual orientation or gender identity and to explore how to integrate these with the rest of their life.

The CCDC can help you if you are experiencing any of the following:

Confusion about your sexual orientation or gender identity.

Exploring "coming out" to peers, professors, family or friends.

You are an LGBT person of color and are experiencing multiple forms of oppression.

You are experiencing tension and/or harassment due to someone's reaction to your sexual orientation or gender identity.

You have LGBT parent(s) and are concerned about developing relationships with people who will be open and accepting of your family's diversity.

You are completely comfortable with your orientation and expect a counselor who is equally comfortable.
