What Else She Said

Even though I was totally out when I thought about taking this job, considering taking the job made me think about how being a queer Jew as my job would change being out in pretty essential ways.

I thought about how much your professional identity is apart of your everyday identity and is a piece of information that anyone feels comfortable asking. And I thought about the myriad daily circumstances in which one is asked, "What do you do for work?" And still after all these years I have to take a breath inside before I tell people what I do.
