‘Bright with possibility’: Student Georgina on LGBTQ+ dating

I grew up in a small, conservative town, so for the first 18 years of my life I was the only gay person I knew. Safe to say I’ve never really dated before. When I came to university and moved to a busy city, I suddenly met all kinds of people. I met my first lesbian friend. I kissed a girl on my course who I’d only known a week.

Suddenly the world seemed bright with possibility. Maybe it was possible for someone like me, someone who had always been… different, to have a shot at normal life experiences. Are you feeling some of this too?
