The problem is: I really want to go to a meeting of the local lgbt group but I'm afraid there will be people from my school and those people tell the others that I was there. What should I do?
I really want to meet new people, especially open minded ones because most people I know only care about what they believe in.
Stacy: In my experience with gay groups, it’s pretty understood that you don’t leave meetings and out other people. If you do any kind of introduction, you can always say I’m so-and-so and I’m not really out, etc. If it makes you feel better, why not try to talk to the leaders of the group before you attend a meeting? Let them know what you’re concerned about and see what they say. I’m sure they’d be happy to reiterate at the beginning of the meeting that not everyone is out and people should use discretion in discussing the meeting.
