Navigating the workplace as LGBTQ By Jackie Kim
Hayden I am partially out. I chose to come out to some coworkers and my identity came out naturally as I got to know them better. I’ve been lucky to come out to my coworkers. I feel like as long as I do my work well, my fear of being discriminated [against] at work is very low. However, to be safe, I don’t want to reveal my sexual orientation to my boss. There has been open-mindedness as well as signs of homophobia. A lot of my gyopo coworkers say, “That's so gay,” when they mean “stupid.” While some have stopped after my coming out, others who don’t know still say this.
