I’m aware that’s a missed opportunity.

I’ve always had an ongoing, internal debate with myself about LGBT+ topics and so I decided to settle on this as my area of study this year. Being a gay man is kind of a big deal to me, so I’m looking to cover LGBT+ topics in my dissertation and my major media project.
