It’s definitely easier these days, at least in that most people I interact with are at work or in the non-profit space, both of which I know would have my back if I had a problem.
Yet I still have a small part of me that isn’t entirely sure that my employers would live up to their words if I had to call out a client for homophobia. Which is ridiculous; we literally just made a groundbreaking ad for trans representation and I’ve been there nearly 12 years, a respected part of the furniture, as it were. But it doesn’t stop me worrying.
But the thing that most strikes me these days is quite how much better representation is — at least for cis white gay men like me. I still get surprised by how much better a world we live in now than when I was a closeted queer teenager on Dartmoor.
