I made a tread detailing his reaction but long story short, he's totally fine with it. But i've always wanted to be out at work and i only refused to be out at work because dad didn't know yet and it would be unfair. So now that he knows, i'm debating if i should be out at work and if so, how. So, for the background info. I feel the most comfortable at work. I work at Walmart and i've worked there for 4 years. Most of the cashiers are either old/middle aged people or kids in highschool or college, as are the supervisors. I highly suspect a supervisor is gay and out not so much for his personality but because i've heard him talk about guys twice. I just don't have the guts to ask him cause i literally don't talk to anybody at work. But that's cause i'm scared of rejection and socially awkward and i don't wanna lose what is pretty much my safe space. I can react however i feel like reacting to people without fear of my mother coming down on me for it. I'm not friends with anyone but i'm casual acquaintances with some of them. I ask this b/c i'm gonna buy two pride necklaces and i would like to wear one at work, the pendant. It has pride colors on it and is labelled as a lgbt pride necklace but i feel like my mom might fall for it if i simply told her i thought it was a cute/pretty necklace. I mean if she found out i had a pride necklace, i'm not gonna be stupid enough to wear it in front of her on the daily. This is not so much to provoke questions but like...cause i want to be able to not hide in at least one way at the one place i feel comfortable in, one, and two because i know at least with me if i see someone wearing pride merch whether they're gay or an ally i just feel more comfortable around them seeing that. Like if some people asked my orientation i'd be okay with answering them. But i can also hide it under my shirt if need be because there are friends of my mom's who shop there and tell her oh hey i saw your daughter getting groceries the other day. So...opinions? Sorry this was so long. So like...is this a safe enough idea? I can just deny up and down that i have a colorful pendant necklace and say i thought it looked pretty, not that i bought it for pride. Cause only one of them says pride on it. This isn't about telling my coworkers so much as having a place where i don't have to default to hiding.
