  1. Hi everyone! Long-time lurker trying to get into posting and making friends within this community. I'm wondering: Any drag friends, queer folk, and allies watching this season of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars? (Also, anyone else excited that the UK version of the show has been confirmed?) Whose team are you on? Who is th'ickning and who is busted? Discuss! Me: #TeamManila, followed by #TeamTrinity.
  2. Hello! So, I'm a part of the lgbt community and I've lived in a big and fairly liberal city all my life and now that I'm moving, I'm really nervous as to what it'll be like. I'm applying to UCLA, Dartmouth, University of Pittsburgh, UNC at Chapel Hill, Stanford, and Columbia and was just wondering if anyone knew if the programs/cities were fairly accepting? I'm not really worried about NY or LA since they're big cities and liberal, but I know Hanover is a fairly small town and not sure how liberal/conservative they are. I also have no idea about Chapel Hill or Pittsburgh either. If y'all live near there, visited, or have heard anything, please let me know! Feel free to ask about other cities/programs as well and hello to any other lgbt people on this site!
  3. Curious to see if there are any other non-binary applicants on this site! I've applied to clinical and counseling psychology PhD programs, and most of them didn't allow me to apply gender-neutrally (i.e., I had to choose a gender marker/title). I'm not sure how to respond to interview invitations that have the wrong pronouns (I use they/them/theirs, my interviews have primarily used she/her) on them -- do I email the department and gently correct them when I respond to the invitation? Or do I just quietly let them misgender me in hopes of gaining a placement?
  4. So I'm currently working on my UCSB Clinical Psych PhD application, which is due in less than two weeks. I'm not too worried, but I have an idea for the diversity statement that may or may not go over well with the admissions committee and I'd like some opinions on it. This is the prompt: UC Santa Barbara is interested in a diverse and inclusive graduate student population. Please describe any aspects of your personal background, accomplishments, or achievements that you feel are important in evaluating your application for graduate study. For example, please describe if you have experienced economic challenges in achieving higher education, such as being financially responsible for family members or dependents, having to work significant hours during undergraduate schooling or coming from a family background of limited income. Please describe if you have any unusual or varied life experiences that might contribute to the diversity of the graduate group, such as fluency in other languages, experience living in bicultural communities, academic research interests focusing on cultural, societal, or educational problems as they affect underserved segments of society, or evidence of an intention to use the graduate degree toward serving disadvantaged individuals or populations. Now I've never really experienced financial hardship - so I don't plan on focusing on that part of the prompt. I am financially dependent on my parents who are homophobic (I'm part of the LGBT+ community) which may come into play but like I said, that won't be the focus of my statement since I'm not out and haven't had to face the consequences of being out to my parents. I have however, thought about speaking on my experience as a child of immigrants who barely knew English, being bilingual, and how that has shaped my view of America. My plan so far is to talk about the intersection of race and sexuality and how that has been an isolating experience for me that I have turned into a motivating factor for studying clinical psychology. Often I've felt that finding a therapist who works to understand rather than pity or assume very hard, which I'm not sure if I should mention. I've been working at my university's LGBT+ resource center for the past couple of years, I've been a mentor for incoming South Asian freshmen for two years, and my honors thesis is on how bicultural identity affects the relationship between internalized stigma and well-being among LGBT+ South Asians. The research lab I've spent the most time in focused on Asian American mental health, and the project I worked on was specifically centered around abuse in Asian American households. Right now I'm confident that this will be enough evidence that I've been dedicated to serving diverse populations and will continue to do so. However, I have a few worries. I know that my racial identity is not usually associated with being disadvantaged, so I wonder if it's even relevant to mention. Among South Asians it's common knowledge that mental health and LGBT+ identities are taboo topics (though that is changing, thank god). In addition, I am worried about being pigeon holed or too specific about my research interests. What do y'all think?
  5. Hey! So I'm trying to decide between Boston University and Drexel University for a MPH. I am looking for opinions on the epidemiology programs in particular. I'm pretty sure I will be heading that route. Also, I will be focusing on the LGBT+ community. So if there are any current students that can attest to the quality of education, opportunities for community involvement and real work experience, job outlook, LGBT-friendliness, networking, general satisfaction with the areas.. umm etc. Any and all opinions are welcome : ]
