I've been trying to figure out what to do with my life since college graduation. Thinking it's going to be journalism and maybe teaching later on.

Interested to hear what you all do and what your career stories are... also if you're out at your job or not, and how you figured out or knew if you were going to tell coworkers.

At my current job - just something to pay the bills atm - I'm not really making an effort to really talk to people that much. Some of them seem conservative enough that I might feel like lying and saying I have a boyfriend if it comes up in conversation... annoyingly had to turn down a couple numbers from weirdo men.

When I was at work, even in extremely professional settings such as academia, I was always out.

Always. It takes me a bit to get comfortable with my work place but once I see that if I’m out that they won’t hurt me or care or anything, then I come out. I’m very open about it and for the most part I’ve had no issue about coming out at work.
