Slate’s resident advice giver Prudence answered a question from a lesbian PhD student who wants to know if and when she should come out to her research lab co-workers. Specifically, how should she act at a bachelorette party?
As for coming out to your co-workers, this actually might be the perfect time to do it if you feel comfortable. It’s an outside of work situation, which means your personal life. If they want you to participate in their personal lives, than they should receive an invitation to yours, too. Bring your own vagina straw to really drive the point home! (Just kidding. Those are harder to find.)
What advice would you offer to someone coming out in a professional turned personal environment?
