Of course when I was at school I’d met people from other countries as well as some people whom I’m pretty sure were gay. At uni though people talk about who they are a lot more. They include their identity in discussions.
In first year, I remember looking around my tute and realizing there were lots of different ways of looking at things. In some ways it was disconcerting, because people were disagreeing with each other. Thinking about it now I realise it was me joining the big, diverse, interesting world. I have learnt so much because of the diversity.
