For some, tolerance comes naturally. For others it can be a process.
A Local Voices blog posted over the weekend titled, “Anxiety and Coming Out for the Lesbian,” by Carolyn Tucker, prompted a separate reader to email Sandy Springs Patch, objecting to the blog.
In part the sender wrote: “You may not know much about Sandy Springs but it is a very conservative part of the metro area with virtually no gay community. This was entirely out of place for a blog catering to Sandy Springs…”
I am happy, Carolyn Tucker, trusted Sandy Springs Patch enough to send us her blog post.
I replied to the reader that while I’m not aware of an organized gay community in Sandy Springs, surely there are gay folks among the nearly 100,000 residents. I personally know of gay people who live, work or patronize businesses in Sandy Springs.
Until I received the sender’s note, I did not conside the question: Are gay people free to be themselves in Sandy Springs?
