  • At which stage do you think it would be most critical for someone questioning their sexual orientation to have someone safe to talk to?

  • At which stage of identity development is a lesbian/gay youth most likely to start deliberately seeking out other members of the lesbian/gay community?

Living in the second most conservative city in the United States places an enormous tension and responsibility on those who may not fit that role or status.  OUTwest Lubbock provides a discussion of “…social and cultural forces that work to silence gender, class, and ethnic differences that in turn silence difference based on sexual preference” (Hammond H., Out West, curated by Harmony Hammond © 1999).

Lubbock's nickname is the "Hub City" which derives from being the economy, education, and health care hub of a multi-county region commonly called the South Plains.
