being gay isn't everything . . .

Recently, somebody I work closely with was doing research on what we initially thought was a summer camp for gay kids. We had assumed it was to help address issues of identity and pride and learning strategies to cope with a sometimes prejudice environment. My friend commented that although she felt such programs were valuable, being gay was only a small component of what defined her. While it is important to recognize her sexuality, it is equally important to not allow this one aspect of who she is, to overshadow her other attributes.
