I atteneded a private, Christian, largely white, high school where the majority of students were wealthy and white. I experienced discrimination, but nowhere near to the level trans, black, or more outspoken students were. This effected how the gays on campus intereacted with each other - we didn’t. We were too scared to be associated with one another, so we found no strength through community. We effectively isolated ourselves which inhibited the growth of acceptance of the self and others.
