I’m moving out in the fall and into a dorm. The thing is, I’ve only lived as an only child. Not to say I haven’t had sleepovers or overnight summer camps, but I’ve never lived with someone else like a roommate for an extended period of time. 7 days max, and only when I was younger. The other thing is that I’ve recently come out as Gay. I’m absolutely terrified of having a roommate and/or making them uncomfortable about me being LGBTQ. I really want to do the university experience with a dorm and roommate and such… I just hope they’re not homophobic. Has anyone else out there been in a similar situation? I’ve dealt with homophobia in the past on a smaller scale. I’m really looking forward to my college life but I also totally understand that there are people out there that may be uncomfortable with me being LGBTQ.
Do I openly disclose that I’m gay from the start? I feel like I should?
Would love advice on this as this is one of the many reasons I didn’t do campus housing as soon as I started college.
