Transgender Awareness Month: Coming Out as Transgender in the Workplace HRC Resource

“Some transgender people who wish to disclose this truth about themselves to others have reached a breaking point in their lives where it’s too difficult to hide who they are any longer. Transgender people often feel compelled to share who they are in order to build stronger and more authentic relationships with those closest to them. This is particularly true at school and at work, where we consistently spend a majority of our waking lives with certain other people.

While there are benefits, there can also be serious risks and consequences involved. The decision is yours and yours alone.  It’s important to weigh both risks and rewards before making a choice to tell others.”
