Testimonials & Love Letters

We’ve been overwhelmed by the feedback on Coming Out Better so far! We’re so happy that people are already making great use of the membership – and there’s even more good stuff to come in the future!

We know that this model works because we have been helping women come out later in life since 2015. We’ve helped over 1500 women worldwide on their coming out journeys.

Here’s what one woman had to say about our support & guidance:

“From my first Google search in late summer 2016 to finding Andrea’s blog, and holding my breath after I sent my intro email to get into the support group. From being accepted and seeing that there were actually so many other women out there whose stories were similar to mine. From developing a deep and sustaining connection with the first real bestie of my life in the UK, to developing friendships with women in California, Arizona, Connecticut, Missouri, Ireland, the East Coast, the South, Africa, Holland, Australia, Canada. From divorcing a man to buying a home and furnishing it, to navigating the emotional upheaval of making a total life change that would deeply affect and influence the trajectory of 4 other lives besides my own. From falling in love with a woman for the first time and then losing that love. 

Through all of these things I had the wise and kind counsel of Andrea, Rachel and all of my new friends. I learned from the advice of others & from the support I gave. I loved sharing laughs and joy with hundreds of women who just got it. This support group has been my lifeline, and Andrea & Rachel’s leadership have kept it an affirming and supportive space like no other group I’ve ever been a part of. I would not be who I am without these women. I would not have found the courage without this group. I found happiness in these connections and I learned how big my heart could be once it was opened.”

In the last installment, we discussed the emotions late life lesbians experience when they come to terms with their sexuality. This time, we’re moving on to labels. Figuring out you’re attracted to women isn’t as easy as thinking, “gee, I guess I’m not straight – I must be a lesbian!” Some of our members are attracted to women, but don’t identify as lesbian, and many resist labeling their sexuality at all because they find sexuality too complicated and personal to put it any one “box.” To give you more insight into this question, we asked:

How did you “arrive” at your home on LGBTQ spectrum, and how do you label your sexuality, if at all?
