Did we talk about what we'd do if we had to come out at work yet?

In that case...

Just what do you feel is appropriate on how to come out at work? I mean, I'm a teacher candidate which puts me in a weird place since I can't get too personal with the kids, but what exactly do you think the limits are with coming out to coworkers?

just mention it when u & ur co workers are talking about boyfriends & girlfriends. i think the workplace should be the easiest place to be open. school can be rough, home can be rough. but in the workplace, theyre like, not REAL friends & yet they kind of have to get used to u haha

In my new job, which I've been doing for about three weeks now, I process student visa applications for the government. My colleagues and I swap stories about interesting cases and people we're working on. Occasionally we play 'Deal or No Deal' (i.e. would you have sex with this person). Last week someone asked if I'd have sex with a particularly attractive female applicant. I said "she's pretty, but I'm gay, so no". They said "oh, right, cool". And that's the story of how I came out at work.

Unless you're having a conversation where your sexuality is relevant and you're talking to a person with whom it would be appropriate to share personal information, it shouldn't matter. And as Kell says, it should be easiest to come out in the workplace. You and I live in societies where it is illegal to discriminate against someone on the grounds of sexuality. If someone takes issue with you being gay, you can take issue with them and the law is on your side.

It's really cool reading about your coming out's and all. I personally can relate to all the discrimination myself. Then again, it's way worse for me, in that if they find out I'm gay and stuff, it's in the books that it's illegal where I am, and all it takes is for someone to kick up a fuss and I'm in prison for 2 years for just being gay. It sucks that we have to face this shit. That's why I hope that once I get a tiny window of opportunity, I'm moving to Canada for good. It's more open there, not just amongst society as a whole but within the gay community as well. My coming out wasn't as bad a s I thought, since a good bit of my family accepts me, but beyond that, my life is pretty much done for if I stay here. I'm one of those guys that really wants to be able to get married and have kids one day, so for me it's a clear-cut thing that being here is only gonna drive me up the wall...

a classmate of mine, living in America right now, came out to me today and I told him a bit of my predicament too and we basically had a really nice chat. The talk leading up to the whole coming out this was very weird and awkward and we were both, so obviously, tip toeing around the whole subject but once we told each other, it was somehow very easy and felt like something in the air was clearer.

I have already told my best friend and one other friend. And one of cousin's knows that I'm bi (when I told him I was sure that I was bi). Coming out to my immediate family is still long ways off haha. But, thank you for the support mate Smile

Also. The oh so perfect Tom Daley came out today (or was it yesterday? either way it was today for me) and said that he has a BF. And for me, the best thing in his coming out video was that he didn't label himself as gay or bi or curious or questioning or whatever but that he's found someone that he's happy with. For some reason, I liked that very much.

Tom Daley would get it daily. And by 'it' I mean my respect and admiration for speaking openly about being in s loving relationship with another man.
