As part of an educational ethnography of a queer cultural center at a western United States university, I explored the center’s cultural importance on the college campus and in its surrounding community. During the course of this study, I used semistructured interviews to inquire about the coming out experiences of four of my participants. Research poetry was used to capture the emotional and poignant words of my gay and lesbian participants.
