About OCO

  • We are a compassionate community of individuals and families coping with coming out
  • We seek positive transformation of relationships when loved ones come out as LGBT
  • We offer an integrated, inclusive approach to mutual support for all people involved
  • We teach communication, relationship and self-directive skills to:
    • deal constructively with the initial coming out crisis
    • handle your emotional chaos
    • intentionally design and build a positive, dynamic and authentic future
  • We are committed to raising awareness that coming out affects millions of families and close relationships world-wide
  • We seek social and legal acceptance of same-gender love relationships to reduce the emotional fallout of coming out
