Start with your current project, and networking with higher people there. They can be really helpful. If you can impress them with your work, they’ll think of you on their next projects.

Suck up. A lot.

I have a WhatsApp group with all of my cousins and they made some casually homophobic remark about a video (a guy was dancing and they insinuated he was gay because the dancing was supposedly "effeminate")... I called it out and now the two oldest are trying to prove some point about me being pompous or w/e.

They don't know I'm queer. I don't want to out myself but honestly I started breaking down after a few exchanges. It's a group of 17+ cousins, and I'm not emotionally prepared for whatever fallout will come from being out to them. But wow. I'm crying and shaking and I just want to post on the group or on FB about how queer I am. But I also am just so mad that I have to out myself to have any validity in calling them out

I dunno what to do. Someone help please. Even better if you're from an immigrant family too
