Comments (primary residence)

"Bexley is the most accepting place on campus for the LGBTQ community hands down. People here are honest and accepting of anyone that is willing to give to the community."

"Most of my friends in Bexley were very accepting of me having a girlfriend. Meanness or feeling excluded was very much the exception rather than the rule. "

"Bexley is one of the most accepting communities I've experienced at MIT."

"People seem to be accepting."

"Extremely accepting"

"BEXXXLEY IS SO GAY COME LIVE WITH US AND BE GAY WITH US TOO. Straight people are only allowed if willing to experiment."

"ONCE I LIVED IN BEXLEY AND I WAS GAY AND IT WAS AWESOME EVERY NIGHT AND EVERY DAY."

"There occasionally seems to be a view external to Bexley that we're homophobic - often due to our postering ideas for Beast Roast every year. Actually there's an attitude here to laugh at homophobia (hence we find homophobic jokes funny). After all, we are hosts to the annual cross-dressing party. And our residents look beautiful in drag. "

"if you're queer, you're queer...it doesn't mean you have to be a poster-child or rename yourself as "Mr./Ms. Queer." That's annoying. "
