Coming out, or disclosing that one is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT), is not a one-time occurrence, but rather a process that often happens over and over again. People may come out to their friends and family but will need to decide if they will be open with new co-workers, acquaintances, or service providers.

This fact sheet provides organizations with best practices for honoring the confidentiality and informed consent regarding personal information shared by LGBT older adults.
