Abstract: The major purposes of this study were to investigate premises regarding self-disclosure as proposed in theories of homosexual development, to gather baseline empirical data on the coming-out process, and to generate information about the practical value of the theoretical premises for the counseling profession several variables that theoretically influence coming-out, such as persons to whom a lesbian has self-disclosed, in what order she has chosen to do this, how her internalized homophobia has influenced behavior, and how her coming-out behavior is related to level of sexual identity development, were investigated.
