Weekly LGBT+ Discussion

Greetings, Avocadoans!  It’s time one again for The Avocado’s weekly discussion of LGBTQQIA+ issues!

Rules for this discussion:

  • UPDATE: All are now welcome! However, please be respectful that this discussion is specifically about issues and topics related to lesbian, gay, bi- or pansexual, trans, queer, questioning, asexual, intersex, non-binary, or any other sexual or gender minority, so please do not stray off-topic.
  • Please put anything graphic behind a < spoiler > tag.
  • As always, any shaming or hateful speech will not be tolerated — if you see some, please flag it ASAP.

Optional discussion topic:  Do you ever feel like the cisgender/heterosexual people in your life treat you differently because of your sexuality or gender identity?  Or, if you’re cishet, do you ever go out of your way to make your LGBTQ+ friends feel included?
