I was in college in the late 90s and early 2000s, in a fairly gay-friendly region of the country. I met a lot of out men, but very few out women--maybe because I wasn't plugged into the scene (too busy hanging out with my DXH and quitting the rugby team), or maybe because women tend to come out a little later in life. Even in the relatively accepting space of campus dorm life, coming out would have been tough. There were a few gay-bashing incidents on campus during my undergrad years, and even the faculty members that everyone knew were gay weren't exactly "out"--they just didn't mention their home lives.
I get emails from high schoolers sometimes, asking for advice on choosing colleges. I thought it'd be cool to do a survey about readers' college experiences. If you attended (or are in) college, I'd *love* it if you'd fill out this short survey if you went to any college at ALL (even if you didn't graduate). I'll post the results Friday!
