High School Seniors Who are LGBT and College

In today's Newsweek (on-line) there was a nice article about colleges and universities that are wooing seniors in high school who are LGBTQ (and hopefully children of LGBTQ parents). It is fascinating to see that LGBTQ youth are a "niche market," rather than a pariah.

However, I caution too much exuberance. There are many schools where being LGBTQ would be considered a "sin." And while some campuses may say they are LGBTQ friendly, it is not like we who are LGBTQ are a one-size-fits-all variety. If anything, we are more diverse than many others who are not LGBTQ, but that's a discussion for another day.
