Hello all, I have written many of my secondaries and I am getting ready to submit however I am getting paranoid and insecure about discussing my identity as a gay male in the diversity statements of my secondaries. Although I don't have much volunteer experiences with LGBT causes (I didn't mention it in my personal statement because I didn't think it was relevant to the themes I wanted to discuss), my identity has played a tremendous role in my own development and my understanding of health disparities that affect minority communities. I am just insecure about talking about this in my secondaries due to fear of adcoms questioning my sincerity or being dismissive of my background. I don't even know if this personal insecurity is a legitimate concern or if it's just my internalized homophobia telling me to shut up and write something more PC. PS: Yes, I know to avoid discussing this at LUCOM, Loma Linda, St. Louis, Creighton, and Western Michigan (?).
