Depends on where you live and what your profession is.
In my daughter’s profession (entertainment), almost every man she knows is gay. No one thinks anything of it as long as the man is qualified to do his job well and is a friendly, trustworthy person.
In certain areas, the percentage of individuals who are gay is huge; e.g., Boystown in Chicago. No one stands out, and no one has to worried about being accepted.
But in other areas and professions, a gay person is definitely in the minority and meets up with those who are not welcoming or worse.
I think that as difficult as it is, a gay person would be wise to live and work away from areas that are predominantly gay. When we live and work around people who are “just like us,” (e.g., my husband and I are tee-totallers and our whole family, for the most part, also abstains from alcohol), we tend to be lulled into thinking that lots of people are just like us and we get upset or angry when someone challenges us.
It’s such a shock when we realize that no, most people are NOT just like us!
We somehow have to learn to get along with others and treat them with love and respect, even when we disagree with their personal choices (e.g., drinking alcohol) or even when we feel that they are doing something sinful (e.g., indulging in same-sex sexual activitiy). We need to be aware that they probably feel the same way about our lives and choices (e.g., being Catholic!).
