Coming Out is a lifelong, continuous process. This group welcomes gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning people to come together and discuss issues regarding coming out, being out, sexuality, identity and other topics. This group will foster a safe space where people can verbalize their concerns about the process of coming out and being out.
This is a drop-in group - there is no need to call ahead.

EPIC is a group of students, faculty, staff and community members who have a passion for educating our community about LGBT issues. We serve as a panel of individuals representing our own belief, faith, culture, background, family and values. With each voice we go into classrooms, EMU and community events, to talk about our experiences in the LGBT community.
WHO can join? YOU can! Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and ALLY.. Men, women, and gender nuetral. Any race, ethnicity, or religion.
WHAT do we talk about? Classroom topics can cover anything from coming out stories, language, health care, LGBT history, family dynamics, religion/spirituality, as well as an open forum Q and A with the students.

We are incredibly excited for our second year of the EMU LGBT Peer Mentorship Program. This program is designed to provide a safe space where LGBTQ students can come and talk to other students, on a one-on-one basis. Mentors will help the mentees adjust to life at Eastern Michigan University and the new opportunities and challenges that that might provide. Mentors are there to answer any questions the mentee might have, whether that is regarding sexual orientation, gender identity, or questions of a purely academic nature. This program will provide a safe, confidential, and affirming space for LGBTQ students to ask questions, get answers, and feel supported.
