Starting a new job is a crush of emotions. The sweaty palms and butterflies of the office walk around, the “hey, let’s go meet everyone.” The need to look cool and calm as the mind races -- don’t let them see me sweat... is there something in my teeth?... is my shirt untucked?... But for LGBTQ people, these emotions are doubled when dealing with the pressure and decision to come out at work. Coming out is seen by many as a singular event, friends and family gathered on a family room so...
