Comments (primary residence)

"I've met one person this year at Ashdown who is vocally homophobic. Others have been very accepting."

"I've met one person this year at Ashdown who openly said gay people were "sick". Others have been very accepting."

"I do not see LBGTQ as a separate community. They are part of the general community like everyone else. It does not factor into my relationships with people. / / I have to say though that as a male, I prefer male roommates, and I do not care what orientation they are, I would be a bit uncomfortable with a *transgender* roommate who identifies as male but is not yet completed the full transition."

""community" at ashdown consists of chinese at all the free food, and Sloanies looking to pad resumes with positions of leadership. To me it is a somewhat overpriced apartment complex very close to my workplace."

"MIT is very accepting of all sorts of people. Watching others react positively to a gay peer made me feel just that more comfortable with my own sexuality."

Comments (secondary residence)

"Honestly I think everyone at ET is super supportive and accepting of LGBTQ individuals, and I don't think it's ever a problem."
