Is this essay topic too controversial?

<p>I'm thinking of writing one of my essays on how it was for me, a homosexual, to grow up in the South (specifically, Georgia). I'm not sure how this will be taken by colleges. What do you think?</p>

<p>not too controversial, definitely not for harvard. if you dont make it sound cliche and the tone is right, it could be very nice.</p>

<p>It's not controversial, but do not write anywhere in your essay "I have not told anyone about this before... but I am going to tell it to you." Also keep in mind that if you have other topics, entertain them as well. Be careful about sounding too whiny - they don't want you to drown in all your disadvantages, they want you to talk about how you overcame them. Be careful about stereotypes as well.</p>
