resident HLS troll reporting. any specifics you'd like to hear about?
There is another girl in here? It's about freaking time, the boys are driving me nuts... sorry boys
I assume you're asking if, among LGBT students, it's a friendly environment. (If you're asking if it's an LGBT-friendly environment then HLS, Cambridge, and Massachusetts are all extremely LGBT-friendly. I can give specifics if you'd like.) We have both enough students total and a high enough percentage in order to have a vibrant LGBT community. Some people decide to get involved in Lambda and others decide not to, but people are by and large quite friendly. Judging from the first admit weekend, there are some great people coming in next year as well.We do a tremendous number of events both politically/educationally and socially. You can see info on that here: http://hlslambda.com/events.htm. The incoming co-presidents have some great ideas, and I think things will only get better in that regard.If you had asked me the dating question a year or so ago, you'd get a different answer. But we've worked with the admissions office on this cycle and last cycle, and and we have a growing number of women. We've also been stepping up mixer events with other grad schools. Two of our female officers entered relationships this year. If you PM me, I'll put you in touch with one of them (since their perspective is much more apt than mine).I really believe that, more than just being accepted and stuff, being gay has enriched my experience at HLS.
