LGBT Educators

Bi and poly teacher, and I am grateful that my admins are accepting of both. Wondering if you are "out" at work, and/or how your school supports the community for both staff and students.

I'm out as being bi and poly to the adults, but the kids only know I talk about my girlfriend. I had a parent complain about it, but my admin shut it down and commented that he knows another teacher that child has talks about his fiance all the time, and she has never complained. I feel lucky to be someplace I am accepted, but nervous as we are getting new admin this year.

my first teaching gig, only 5 years ago, the hiring manager heard that I (gasp!) had a photo of my family on my desk. Within days the pitchforks came for me. if it hadn't been for my principal, that would have been it. but then the next year, they axed her, and then got me once my protector was gone. it's never the kids you have to worry about. they don't give a sh*t. it's the few but vocal Neanderthals.

I'm not out at school. This school system is accepting of gay and lesbian teachers but I'm not sure their stance on polyamorous relationships.

The last time I was out at school it didn’t go well, but so far this year has been fine. There has been a gay art teacher at the high school forever and he is much beloved.

I'm out at my school and people are supportive of it. I'm very fortunate that we have policies that protect both staff and students who identify as LGBTQ. We also have measures to protect our trans students as well. I will say that we could be more open and out about is, however. In the future, I would love to open a PRISM club on campus to better strengthen and empower our student support of our LGBTQ+ population.

I am out at work. My admin is very supportive. However I do not disclose that information to my students or their families. I am concerned that there will be a backlash.

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

To the Republicans here, how can you sit there and watch the government you elected totally screw this virus response up? Watching an interview with a FEMA admin, and they don’t have a number...

every time a consultant glorifies their coffee addiction and reveres Starbucks, it grinds my gears. But this is cruel - close the damn stores.

It’s interesting how America spent trillions of dollars on wars and glorifying soldiers when the biggest threat to its wellbeing these days is a pandemic. Let’s invest more in our healthcare sector!

Interested in taking a more promiscuous approach to “dating” but unsure where to look. Fearful I’ll see/be seen by people I know by going the usual Tinder route. Any other ideas?
