bcellparty Posted January 13, 2017 Share Posted January 13, 2017 Hey all, I'm prepping for my first interview at UChicago and feel fairly confident about most things, but attire is (as usual) tricky. I identify as agender (they/them pronouns) and have been out in my academic and professional life for three years now. My lab and everyone I've met at the NIH have been incredibly accepting in the past two years of me working here, and I'd like to continue to be out and referred to in a way that makes me feel comfortable. A few of my applications asked for pronouns, and UChicago is one of them. Therefore, I feel comfortable presenting as myself for that interview. What about the other ones though? Do I shake hands and say my pronouns after my name? Should I try to pass as cis? I know two of them will be accepting (a friend of mine at UPenn will give the admissions folks the heads-up about my pronouns), but the other two are up in the air. Any other GQ/NB folks going through this or went through this already? Any advice? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
