  1. It’s funny. I’m not out at “work” but, I’d say that I am when it comes to freelancing. My website doesn’t say I’m a lesbian but, it does say that I’m passionate about LGBT issues. It says the same on my resume as well. I’ll be honest at first I wasn’t sure about putting on my resume that I’m passionate about writing about LGBT issues but, I couldn’t not. I’m a very honest person. I was worried that I might be discriminated against because of it but, I don’t want to get work or do business with anyone who is discriminatory against a community that I’m a part of or anyone period anyway. I feel like you can either take or leave it. If you’re not judging me based on my experience and work then I don’t work from you anyway.My website also has a link to my blog where you can clearly see that I’m gay. So it’s not like I have anything to hide. I’d also much rather people know who and what they’re dealing with upfront.

    As far as us being out I always say being “out” is a personal choice and journey. So I can’t really say if it’s important or not. I think that’s a personal choice. If it’s important to you then yea.

  2. I am. and it works just fine for me. why? and why not? it realy helps to talk to people that otherwise wouldn’t have a chance to be open about it. it is important to do what you feel like doing, that’s all.

  3. It’s so refreshing to see your blog, thank you. And, yes, I am OUT in my business. My business was created as an OUT and proud lesbian business serving lesbians! Wouldn’t have it any other way!
