We are a U.S. based social initiative providing a free & anonymous social network for people 13+
going through the coming out process. By developing technology, coordinating LGBTQA (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/questioning/ally) competency trainings, and connecting users from the network to their local communities, we are working to eliminate the burden of coming out.
We welcome you to sign-up to volunteer online to talk to others about your experience or you could even start your own JLY college/community chapter!

Hello all! I’m Sara, a junior student athlete at York College of Pennsylvania and I play for the school’s varsity softball team. I’m a lesbian and currently out and proud! My self-acceptance of being a lesbian didn’t happen until I was a freshman in high school. Once I understood my true feelings I spent years trying to deny and cover up who I really was. I felt uncomfortable and knew that I wasn’t living life as myself and got tired of being who I thought everyone else wanted me to be. After spending 2 years like this, and going through a change of high schools, I came out to my immediate family when I was a junior and was fully out to all my friends by college. Without the support that others gave me I don’t know how I could have done this. For some it’s easy, and for some it’s hard, but coming out is an experience that no one forgets and I’m here to help to make it better. See Full Profile
"It wasn't until I became a justlikeyou.org online volunteer that I really discovered how much I can help others who are experiencing emotions I went through when I was coming out. It has been a pleasure joining a community that values who you are and not what you look like."
