What Else She Said

I think it's easier because I'm a woman. Guys in this school won't talk about being gay, really. The ones who I think are make it a joke. And I think I would have known earlier probably if I was a guy, and other people would have known.

When I came out, people had no idea... I think being a woman has been to my advantage. But I also feel like I can't reach a section of the population because it is so much harder for them and I don't really know how to make the space where they can come out. But at least they're coming to GSA.
