Coming out is when a person decides to reveal an important part of who they are with someone in their life. For many LGBTQ people, this involves sharing their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
Unfortunately, coming out isn't always easy. After thinking it through you may decide not to come out - and that's ok too. Many people decide not to for different reasons. Remember, there isn't one right way to come out, and it's YOUR choice.
It is the policy of the University of Missouri System that a student may choose to identify themselves within the university community with a preferred first and/or middle name that differs from their legal name and gender.

An "ally" is a term used to describe someone who is supportive of LGBT people. It encompasses non-LGBT allies as well as those within the LGBT community who support each other.
Allies are some of the most effective and powerful voices of the LGBT movement. Not only do allies help people in the coming-out process, they also help others understand the importance of equality, fairness, acceptance and mutual respect.
