StartOut matches you with a role model to help navigate the tricky parts of being DSG

Growing up different isn’t easy and coming out can be one of the most challenging things someone who is of diverse sex, sexuality or gender (DSG) will ever do.


If you’ve ever thought it would be nice to have someone to talk to who has been there before, a StartOut online role model could be just the someone you’re looking for!


When you join StartOut, no matter where you are, you’ll have someone who can help you navigate the tricky stuff. It’s 100% free, online and always confidential, so you can ask anything and just be you!
