1. Thank you!
I'm completely out to family, friends, coworkers. It's wonderfully liberating. :-)

6. Thanks
I teach so it may be longer for me than for many others. I moved to the district I moved to precisely because I wanted to be in a district where I could be out to coworkers. I wouldn't really want to be out to my kids probably but who knows on that.
