Thank you for the thoughtful and reflective post. It is a complicated world indeed. My college-age daughter says that her generation recognizes up to 43 different types of sexuality and believes that more people are gender fluid than they realize or admit. Society has yet to catch up!
I am a member of a diversity and inclusion working group at my university, and we have, in addition to race, much of the LGBTQ+ spectrum represented as well. It is quite a diverse and inclusive group. I get much more direct support here, of course, but we are so all in this together.
