Absolutely. Never hide. And if you have to, just like we all felt the need to move to cities that would accept us and celebrate us, move agencies.

A few know a few don’t. I don’t hide it anymore so depends on the relationship and if they are asking about my weekend.

No.

I work in a political space, so yes. It comes up often. In previous roles, I think if they didn't know it was purposeful ignorance based on how I presented myself.

Hi Fishes, I have joined CS on 10th Oct last month. Things are going smooth till now but I want to learn fast as I have completed 1 year after passing CA. My teammates are working from home, feeling uncompatible for learning as they are messed up with their daily task. No 1 is readily available to solving the doubts. My observation limits to my screen appearance. I think limited listening tends to limited learning. Anyone have any idea how to get interact with teammates to faster my learning?

I’m sure it’s not new to 2022, but I’m feeling more than ever this year how much of “corporate pride” centers around gay men and calls it “lgbtq”. Are gay women, bisexuals, etc. not as palatable for audiences? I’m struggling with this a bit.

Saw this on Twitter - it's the sad truth because two of our clients pulled their Pride projects, even when we advised them that there's still a huge opportunity 😢

Watching the season premiere of Queer Eye and Karamo just said, “I don’t see any queer literature in here,” expressing his frustration towards the gay priest’s personal bookshelves.

Sigh. Are LGBTQ+ expected to have books about being LGBTQ+ now?

Am I wrong for having a problem with this mindset and the expectations of one not being “queer” enough?

Recently a high powered individual scolded me for killing a tone deaf pride idea, because I said, “As an lgbtq person, I feel ____.” Allegedly that phrasing wouldn’t allow others to feel like they could state their opinions on the idea. I was extremely upset but didn’t want to burn a bridge so I listened to their feedback and tried to let it go. But I haven’t really let it go - it was demoralizing and insulting...and quite frankly I’m angry I let them get away with it. What would you do?
