Updated Views on the Gay Community at Notre Dame

I know there have been threads about this in the past, but I was wondering if anyone could provide a more updated depiction of what the gay community is like at Notre Dame and how accepted it is by the general student population. Considering Notre Dame is a Catholic university I recognize that the gay community probably does not have a huge presence, but I would just like to know how sizable the community is and how other students generally view it. I have loved Notre Dame for as long as I can remember, but I fear it may not be the school for me due to past reports of intolerance. Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Current freshman here, I don't really know any LGBTQ people but do know friends who have a lot of friends that are. There is even an LGBTQ house that often throws parties and even though Notre Dame is fairly conservative, I feel that most people here are accepting of gay people.

    My experience through my two children who have attended, is that the student body is very accepting of all lifestyles. These are intelligent, progressive students. I don't think you would have any trouble at all.
