Good question Michael. Being lesbian is a minority and a culturally different way of seeing the world.
I really appreciate you both for your honesty and self-reflection. My advantage is being an American male. However, most see my name and me as being Latino and Hispanic. I am actually Filipino/Irish/Cherokee, and instead of being Catholic (like many believe when they see me) I am an ordained Baptist minister chaplain, and I also perform Cherokee ceremonies. In face to face seminars I have actually seen people drop their mouths open when I inform them. I do this to bring more to home our own biases, good/bad/indifferent. So I have discovered that my upbringing makes me feel like an outsider at times, with some showing me their prejudice.
