Coming Out at Work

The biggest hurdle in coming out at work is determining if you are ready to come out. Nobody can really know this but you, and it is a big decision.

When looking for information on coming out at work, I came across a great article:  Coming Out at Work by Russell Kaltschmidt, Editor of gay.com. Coming out is always risky, but you may be able to minimize the risks by following a well thought-out plan.

Kaltschmidt’s advice is to:

  1. Assess your readiness
  2. Perform at your best
  3. Gather supporters
  4. Choose a strategy
  5. Conduct a trial run
  6. Consider the timing
