THE CLOSET MONOLOGUES: Coming Out and Embracing your Sexual Orientation

The issues facing today’s LGBTQQI young people are both as old as time and as new as today’s headlines. In this program, Scott addresses many of the challenges and responsibilities facing gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered youth. The program deals with how societal shame can transform into internalized self-hatred and cause a multiplicity of risk behaviors. Program discussions also include disclosure issues and what it really means to be “in the closet” or “out.”
