“What’s the difference between being a black gay person and a gay black person? How do I know which identity to put first, and put the most energy into? If I’m a queer activist, I am turning my back on my race, and if I am a black activist, I’m turning my back on my sexuality. Both communities make me feel like I have to pick one or the other, and I don’t know which one to choose.”- Question submitted by Anonymous and answered by Cassidy Hill as part of Everyone Is Gay: Second Opinions—Cassidy Says:There’s a lovely little term I’m going to share with you, anon: intersectionality. (In the bootleg Wikipedia definition, intersectionality is the “study of intersections between forms or systems of oppression...

“Hi! Do you have any advice on dating and being involved in the LGBT community while sober? I recently began my coming out journey and am looking for more ways to be involved and seek community, but so many events are centered around alcohol or bars and I don’t drink. I appreciate any advice you have! Thanks!”- Question submitted by Anonymous–Kristin Says:I do have advice! I do!Let’s do this in two parts, shall we? The dating part, and the being involved part. COOL GREAT LIFT OFF:Getting involved in the larger community without alcohol is totally possible, and means that you will open up really badass avenues into community-based efforts toward change and awareness.

“I recently accepted my identity as genderqueer and have asked my closest friends to use they/them pronouns for me. However, I didn’t realize how complicated this could be because so many things are gendered in our world. Am I still a lesbian? Can I still participate in girls’ night? Can I be somebody’s girlfriend? How do I deal with the weird feeling I get from being on a women’s intramural team? Help!”- Question submitted by Anonymous and answered by Red Davidson as a part of Everyone is Gay: Second Opinions. __Red Says: Hi! Congratulations on coming out to some of your friends, that’s a huge step. Gender is really confusing and can be hard to talk about with people, so asking your friends to use...

“Hi! I’m a female junior in high school who asked a girl to prom last week (she said yes!) but I am not out as bisexual to my parents. My parents are both conservative and neither pro-gay nor anti-gay (at least, I think!) They believe I’m going to prom alone, and I’m struggling with whether I should come out before prom or afterwards. If I tell them before, I risk them flipping out and disallowing me from going; if I tell them after, they might think I was lying/being dishonest about prom. Help!”- Question submitted by Anonymous–Kristin Says:Lie!OKAY OKAY SORRY THAT WAS MY FIRST IMPULSE, LET’S TALK THROUGH THIS LIKE TWO ADULTS.The reason that I shouted “lie!” ...

“Are intersex people inherently part of the queer community?”-Question submitted by Anonymous and answered by Claudia Astorino as part of Everyone Is Gay: Second Opinions—Claudia Says:Hey there, Anonymous! This is a great question, and one that’s important to address.  Intersex issues are starting to gain mainstream traction, and us intersex people have had a slightly raised profile in the last couple of years. People are interested in learning how our movement for rights and equality fits in with other movements at this time in history; for many folks, I think “including the I” in the LGBT acronym (i.e., LGBTI – or even better and more inclusive – LGBTQIA!) makes intuitive sense, while others can just as easily see intersex issues as distinct...
