LGBTQ+

Brittan Hardgers

Friday was National Coming Out Day. While it's being celebrated, the Supreme Court is considering the employment rights of LGBTQ workers.

Members of Rochester’s gay and trans community shared their experiences of coming out, and what this political moment means for them.

Tamara Leigh is with Rochester's Out Alliance, an organization that provides resources and programs for the local LGBTQ community. She came out later in life, when she felt safe to do so, she says.
