i’m working on choosing a college to go to and i was wondering if anyone in the tags could tell me what the queer community is like at your school (i would prefer to have queer people answer my first question but you don’t have to be)
also, i’d love to hear what it is you like about your school if you want to share! (from anyone attending or that has attended)
so I go to hampshire.
I’m really reluctant to call what we have a ‘queer community,’ but I’m reluctant to call anything that, b/c someone being trans or gay or what have you doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll be friends, and all that.
But it’s…nice. At some point, some queer people at Hampshire built mud houses for themselves. And those people are leaving, and my friends and I, and other people, have built our own houses, the way we want to, growing/abandoning/maintaining the features of what is already there. I fully expect and want what I have built here to fall apart + make way for the needs of others when I leave.
But what it boils down to is, hampshire will let you find some really cool people and build some really nice community, but you’re going to have to do a bit of legwork yourself, b/c it’s all based on friendship.
other than that people are generally as supportive and nice as you could hope.
