I am a shit who never posts and I'm only posting now because I signed up for a summer class at my new school that starts on Tuesday and I have 40 pages of homework problems. Yes.
They are into everything happening, they're showing up at every fricking event. Would totally punch a punk in the face for making a homophobic comment. Just like a giant party. Pride colors all the way.
Has made so many signs. Why so many signs? You don't know. They don't know either. Signs everywhere. And stickers, but mostly signs.
Wearing the most obnoxiously overdone clothing possible just to piss people off. If not, literally doesn't talk about it at all until someone makes a comment to their face that's homophobic and they just smile and stare into their eyes while they reveal their sexual/gender preferences.
Is hosting all the best house parties, has stickers all over their car. Might do something really cute like make pride cupcakes or wear a custom shirt.
How to Meet LGBT People in College (or somewhere else)
The gay/straight alliance
Almost every school has some sort of LGBT organization. Gay Student Union. Gay/Straight Alliance. Queers United. Queers and Allies. Look around for groups with names like this. Check out their meetings and social hours. Don’t give up after only one visit. If the group seems small or not involved in activities that interest you, then offer to get involved. Try hosting a lesbian movie night, book discussion group or coffee house
In Your Dorm
As you’re wandering the halls of your dorm, look for telltale signs of other LGBT students. Does someone have a rainbow sticker, and equality sign or a “No H8” sign on their door? This is a sure sign of someone who is out and proud. Why not knock on their door and introduce yourself? Or slip a note under their door and tell them you noticed their stickers and were interested in meeting other open-minded people.
In Your Classes
Take a look around. Do you have a feeling about someone in your class? Does the girl who sits up front and takes vigorous notes seem like the type who might just possibly like women? Is there someone in your chemistry lab who seems to try to make eye contact with you every time the TA makes a corny joke? If you’ve got a feeling about someone, it could be your gaydar. Try to find a way to strike up a conversation with that person
Sports Teams or Clubs
You don’t have to be a varsity athlete to partake in campus sports. If you’re into softball, basketball, rugby or any other team sport, chances are there is a club team that you can join. Sure it’s a stereotype that lesbians play sports, but chances are you might meet another LGBT person playing ultimate Frisbee or working out in the gym.
If you’re looking to meet someone to date, try taking out a personal ad. You usually have to be 18 to take out an ad. Online dating can be a good way to make friends too. You’re probably going to meet a lot of people you don’t develop romantic feelings for, but they could end up being good friends ( or try tumblr :D )
Join a Group
Don’t mean a gay group either. Get involved in an extra curricular activity that interests you. Take a self-defense class. Write for the college newspaper. Join an environmental organization. If you’re interested, chances are other LGBT students will be too.
Once you’ve made at least one friend you can trust, come out to him or her. Everyone knows someone gay these days. You can be clear you’re not looking for a hook-up (if you’re not), but just want to meet other LGBT people for friendship. The fact is, LGBT people do tend to hang out with other LGBT people. Once you meet one friend, you’re bound to be introduced to others, be invited to LGBT friendly parties and dance
