Things have been improving!
I got this button that says QUEER, because the giant rainbow lanyard wasn't getting anyone's attention and it has been wonderful!
It has made my life so much less complicated and I met more people who were Queer that I saw everyday that I wasn't sure were that way. COOL!
On an aside, I pointed it out to this one guy and he was a bit confused and said a few stupid things, but to my great suprise, my roommates came immidiately to my defense! YAY! This is great because they know only one other Queer person at all. :) Me so happy!
ALSO, this guy that had tried to date me on V Day was so great when I came out too. He introduced me to the other Queer people in our building.
So things are looking up.
