12 Things Lesbian Students Who Move To a City Uni From The Country Will Understand
Many will relate to the struggles of living in the country, but only some will know the true struggle of being a lesbian from the country! Here are some things you’re guaranteed to have experienced when finally making the big move to the city:
1. You are definitely no longer the only gay in the village.
After living in a little village in the middle of nowhere, this is your chance to find a face-to-face LGBT community. The city is filled with different types of people, and you can’t wait to find yours!
2. But now there are lesbians everywhere and you have no idea who you are anymore.
Surrounded by other LGBT people, you realise that ‘lesbian’ was your only identity. A mild sense of panic sets in as you try to figure out who you actually are.
3. Sort of accidentally falling for everyone at first.
It turns out you’ve been so starved of possible relationships, that every woman who loves women is making your couple instinct go berserk.
4. And wanting to go out every night now that you actually have good gay bars to go to.
Heck, you’d even go to a straight bar as long as there are actually people there.
5. Realising there’s so much about LGBT culture you haven’t heard about yet.
You were more sheltered than you realised in the country.
6. Your first time at Pride is a whirlwind of rainbows mixed with the nostalgia of home.
A party in a field? I’m in! You realise that Pride is more than just a big party, it’s a chance to everyone to hear about the great political changes that have happened in the year, plus, it already feels like home.
7. Though it’s a big city, you soon find your way around to all the best lesbian hang outs.
And you realise that everyone knows each other. Or rather, everyone’s dated each other.
8. And you thank the Lord for the Alice Pieszecki diagram.
If you know, you know.
9. But if that doesn’t work out, there’s still Tinder.
Because here in the city, Tinder actually works.
10. Despite all of these new things you’ve learnt, some city LGBT slang remains a mystery to you.
“She called him fishy… I didn’t think he was a sneaky guy!”
11. But you can at least inform all your fellow country bumpkins on your new-found city life/lesbian knowledge you’ve amassed.
Whether they want to hear it or not!
