Sexual Orientation refers to an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic, and/or sexual attractions to men, women, or both. Research over many decades indicates that sexual orientation, for many individuals, falls along a range or continuum with opposite-sex attraction at one end of the spectrum and same-sex attraction at the other end. Social stigma may make it difficult for individuals who are exploring and/or questioning their sexual orientation to reach out for support. The Buffalo State College Counseling Center offers a safe, supportive environment for individuals to discuss and explore issues related to sexual orientation. In addition to individual counseling, the Counseling Center also offers a support group, Inside Out, for LGBT and questioning students.
