Being a woman probably facilitated my work as an activist in gay rights, because women are nurturing and supportive, and known to be. They are very indebted to finishing a task that they think is important. All of those traits were important to me as an activist for gay rights, and they probably facilitated my acceptance as a liaison, particularly by gay students. Yet I think that a sensitive man (and there are plenty of those) could have done an equally fine job. The secret is availability: keeping an open door.
