Some questions about experiences

1. Are any of you "out" to your family? What were their reactions? Or do you try to keep things on the down low as much as possible?

2. Is there a queer community where you live? Is it an ethnic one? Do you feel you fit in?

any comments would be cool :)

for the sake of picking up journals


i know this is not essentially an adding community and i (will be a little heartbroken but) won't complain if the moderators choose to delete this post, but i'm more or less new to LJ and would like to read and interact with people writing about queer issues on a day-to-day basis, in personal life, as well as socially/academically. well, as short and sweet as that.

will be looking forward to the responses! (or hoping that the post doesn't get banned in the first place. heh!)
