Coming Out at Notre Dame

Coming Out at Notre Dame

This woman works everyday to help create a better place for the youth in the LGTBQ community. She had great points that highlighted some real goals she would love to achieve, as well as goals she would like to see Washington D.C achieve. I think her story provided a lot of practical solutions that could help solve issues within the DC community and beyond.

The fact that I did feel so 100% comfortable being myself in my High School was huge for me and definitely influenced me in my advocacy. The way I got involved in my advocacy was through going to school in Notre Dame. I was one of the only out girls in my class, and it was kind of significant to be the only freshman girl who felt comfortable coming out. There was a group call the Core Counsel and they advised the administration on LGBTQ affairs, and I was pretty much pushed to be on that counsel since I was the only out girl at that time. I can definitely say that because I spent the last 4 years in an environment where it was not a big deal to be out, it helped lead me down that path.
