Comments (primary residence)

"I believe a couple of residents may have been LGBTQ, but there were not very open about it. In any case, iHouse is filled with a very diverse group. Ironically, the diversity sometimes makes it difficult for everyone to agree or see the same way. I guarentee many residents will be accepting/open, but expect some ackwardness. Whether open or not, I'd welcome you here."

"We had someone gay living in iHouse last year, he was very accepted in our and close friends with some iHouse people. / / Using words such as 'gay' with a negative connotation in speech (such as 'that pset problem was so gay!') is twisted in some ways. I sometimes say things along those lines because to me it's just a way of saying I didn't like something. It has nothing to do with my judgement on homosexuals - in fact, I consider myself as very accepting of homosexuals and couldn't care less about whether is straight, homesexual, bisexual etc. I understand that to the LGBT community, using 'gay' as a negative term can be very offending and hurtful. Yet it's hard to refrain from using words that are so much part of typical slang..."
