18 Things That Happen When You're A Gay Fresher
Turns out they have closets at university too.
At some point you're probably gonna have to come out.
But that can be a lot harder than it seems.
However out and proud you were back home, you're back to square one now.
You might think that it's super obvious that you're a flaming homo and people will just assume so.
Maybe you'll try to subtly slip it into conversation.
It can be hard finding what seems like the appropriate moment though.
You kind of hope the perfect moment will come where someone will outright ask you if you're queer.
Straight-out-of-school freshers can be particularly ignorant, so you'll probably be asked some pretty shitty questions in your first few weeks.
You'll try to suss out who else might be a homo.
There will be surprisingly few other LGBT people at first.
When you eventually find another gay fresher you try to play it cool, but really it's super exciting.
"Straight" students will want to "experiment" with you. 😒
There will be some people that have always wanted a "gay best friend" and will try their hardest to make you theirs.
You will sign up to the LGBT society at freshers' fair, mainly because you feel like you should.
If you decide to go to the first LGBT meeting it will probably be painfully awkward.
If you're lucky your uni town might actually have a gay scene, and as soon as you make some gay friends you'll be there.
If you come from a small town, going anywhere where there are other gay people can be overwhelming.
You might not find your squad in freshers' week.
