Your first experience with an LGBT organization or event (Day of Silence, Pride, etc)
It was probably Day of Silence that came first. I remember participating in it wholeheartedly my freshman year in college. I really appreciate(d) the symbolism of it – silence to highlight the silenced. These days my job requires me to speak more than I can comfortably excuse under the necessary speaking exception, so I no longer participate – it doesn’t feel right, for that reason alone. I still support the idea behind it 100%.
