Thanks. I work for a state agency and for a few colleges who are strict with their adherence to anti-discrimination laws. I also do wonder about the “hidden” costs of transitioning at work, like the fear of losing promotions. It sounds like that was happily not the case with your job, but I do live in a very conservative area, and I’ve heard some horror stories from people who came out at one university I used to be at. I’m just wondering if that was more an aberration, or if it is one of those things that happens more often than is reported.
