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.
