Dear Mr. Halloway, the reaction of your work colleagues is indeed very heatwarming to hear; it is so nice to have some positive news in these trying times. I have to say the 'changes to the code of conduct regarding queer couples' sounds rather ominous, though!

Yours,
Miranda.

Hey, friends. I haven't been on the forum in a while, but thought I'd let you know that I came out publicly at my very conservative religious private school, and I'm amazed at how well it went. Such an outpouring of love, and now I'm in a position to help other queer students navigate an environment that really wants to love all its students, but has some endemic prejudice. I engage in a lot of "queer chaplaincy", and this semester I both wore my first pride outfit and participated in my first political rally to protest recent changes to the code of conduct regarding queer couples.

I'm still navigating what it means to be a devout queer man in a heterosexual marriage. I'm treated unfairly well, especially at school, because I present very straight. But I'm finding ways to use my privilege to advocate for others in a way that's been fulfilling for me.
Glad to hear that you found a safe and welcoming place among school mates. I trust that you mean "school code of conduct"?

These are trying times, for sure, never mind together with a pandemic and global economic meltdown. And religious ideology has expanded way beyond the pulpit. So I'm not surprised that rules are tightening.

I got a binder, but I still can very much see my chest... Disappointing :(
