A humbling moment(s) for me this semester at NCCU where I currently teach is all the students--women and men--who have come out of their "closet," and shared, often in class, that they also happen to be a lesbian or gay. In class!?
The novelty for me is simply this: at Duke Divinity School--where I taught for over a decade--no students came out of the closet IN CLASS itself. There was one student my last year at Duke Divinity School, who finally shared--after some awkward talking "about the issue"--that he was gay. And that was incredibly brave then...and my hunch is now.
Kudos to my students at NCCU!
your humble teacher,
Can a “gay-sounding voice” cost you your job? - A just-published study suggests the answer is "yes."
