Last week I sent out my 300th application for employment. I’ve been doing this for 18 months. I’m out online (and at work, and everywhere), but I still have to edit myself in what I post. Because of exactly what you’re talking about. I can’t afford to say what I really should be saying, because calling out what any other minority would be EXPECTED to call out is a step too far when you’re gay. It makes me a questionable troublemaker, a risk. As does THIS post quite possibly. But I had to say thank you anyway, for being my voice, and the voice of others, until we can speak for ourselves.
