This website accurately describes the six different phases of coming out. Not all queer people go through each and every stage and these stages are not progressive. Neither are they not regressive.
Meaning, these stages may or may not follow from 1-6. Some people (like me) jump stages…or skip a stage only to come back to it later. The gist is that it is very hard to generalize (or put in a single box) deeply personal human experiences such as coming out.
