huhwhat saidI'm not Out at work, but when I move to the next job, I plan to be. It's amazing the kind of things people say about gay people when they don't know who's really around.
I'm in the same position, and I couldn't agree with you more. In fact, I just left my job of 12 years, and one of the upsides is that I will be "out" in my next job. Not screaming out, mind you; but no longer feigning heterosexuality and being evasive about my personal life.
It is funny to hear what people say when they think the entire crowd is straight. That's one of the reasons I chose not come out in my last job...a lot of folks would have been worried about all of the crap that they'd said in the past. Part of me wanted some of my co-workers to have that "oh shit" moment, but most of them were my friends and I didn't want to put them through that.
