← Coming Out Is Fun

EDIT: (missed the edit window! D'oh)

If office worker (person A) in the UK said to their colleague (person B):-

1) I'm going to a gay bar this weekend.

2) I'm going to a strip club ...

3) I'm going to church ...

4) I'm going to a Humanist meeting ...

5) I'm going to a talk by Richard Dawkins ...

Only 1) would get a reaction if B didn't know A was gay, or 2) depending on the sexual politics of the office. The others would probably get "Oh that's nice, I'm playing golf ...".

I think this "coming out" is a personal non-issue in the UK. However, there is still a political position to take, because the religious/Christians still think they represent the population.
