    Is it necessary to inform my sexual orientation at work?

    Do people in my workplace need to know about my sexual orientation. I fear that declaring that i am a lesbian might lead to discrimination or bullying and I am not going to be comfortable with that.

    Hi aspirant

    1) Do waht your heart says.
    2) If you are not comfortable with the idea of others knowing your sexual orientation, then dont tell anyone.
    3) But it is possible they might come to know about it from somewhere els.
    4) Be brave and I dont think anyone will bully you .
    5) If someone discriminates against you go and complain to your manager and he will take care of it .

    So friend be brave and dont be afraid of anyone. Good luck and Thank you very much

    Hello,

    Firstly I would like to say that since you have chosen your own path ,dont fear to face it.Be bold and gather courage to face it.You have the right to chose your own sexual orientation,nobody has any right to bully you.If you need any clinical support to prepare your mind ,do take it.But never fear to face it.You are answerable to your parents only.If they are ok with it,then need not worry about any one else.Give a damn to others.As it is not possible to make everyone happy in this world.If you are happy yourself with your partner,then nothing else matters.It is not necessary to inform everyone at your office regarding your sexual orientation.If required,dont fear to face it.Some people will be there to gossip after this information comes to the forefront,but you need not worry about them .Give a damn to what they say,be happy with your own choice and be sincere to your work.My best wishes are with you!

    Hi................,

    Suggestions---------->
    * In CV you need to mention that what gender you belong.
    * You can give a male or female gender but do not give other.
    * Behave normally so that no one can raise any question.
    * Hope your ideology for work will be given importance.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    No there is no need to tell this at all.
    When you are at your work place,you are just an employee and nothing else.
    So there is no need to inform such things at work.
    Concentrate on your work!

    Bye!

    Hello !!!

    dear, no one in the workplace is interested to know about the sexual orientation of the colleague. ok???
    but if you are lesbian so, i request you not to make them aware about your sexual orientation in any way. ok??
    also if some one ask you about this, you just reply them that this is a personal question and you are not interested in giving the reply.
    also if they came to know that you are lesbo than dont ever let them get confirm about you.
    because confusion is good than the confirmation.
    and also being lesbian is not so much bad.
    as it is ones interest to get interested in man or woman.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting.

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is not necessary to disclose each & every points of your personal life to the work place.Most of the individuals under go some pleasure or unpleasure events in life which not to be disclosed at work place.Secrecy in life must be maintained.If you disclose all your real things which you had come across knowingly or unknowingly in your past life,you will become a matter of joke & laugh by which you will feel very eneasy to work.Also you may be blackmailed in future.

    So confine yourself to official corum.Try to be a good employee.See the official culture.Develop good good qualities to be a good employees.Try to learn as many as good things which may be required in your professional carrier.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..
