"Within the walls of TCC, 1 or 2 friends know.
Outside, no one has the slightest idea. My religion hinders me, I have friends that attend both my church and college.
If I was found out I would face more persecution that I already do.
" (TR)
"While I am not out to my direct family members,
I am out to most everyone within the TCC Community
, because I feel as though that most people that attend this campus are very open-minded. However, I don't come out to people directly and say that I am gay unless it comes up, or I'm personally asked by someone directly." (NW)
