So, I work at Kroger now. It's kind of boring, but I like it. I wear my rainbow bracelet to work every day (I wear it everywhere every day), and the other day, the girl that works customer service said she liked it. She then gestured at it and asked if I was....
Those were her exact words. "Are you....?"
I have recently decided to answer that question honestly when it is asked by someone I don't actively hate. So I said yes. Turns out she's bi. She's getting married in a few months (to a dude), but it's cool that I know of another gay girl at work. And then later, last week, I was near the customer service desk, and she called me over. She was talking to another girl, and when I came over, pointed to her and said "This is Anna. She's.... like us."
I'm really happy to be around people who have come out. At my small school, there is only one "out" guy (and he's kind of an ass) , and though I know of at least three girls that like girls, none of them are publicly announcing their orientations. A few other girls and I are starting a GSA soon though. I submitted the club proposal to the principal a few days ago, and yesterday she said I had to pick the day we would meet and write the announcement. I'm so excited. I expected a lot more resistance, but everything seems to be falling into place.
