    Well I'm not gay, but my campus is the arts one... In my halls, the majority of the guys are gay. I'm not sure about lesbians, but I know there were definitely 3... And no one cares at all. It's just not a big deal.

    Not gay, but I know people at uni who are.

    No-one gives them grief.

    We uni lot are generally more accepting than most (that's my personal experience).

    (Anon because I'm gay at university but my friends from home/here don't know)

    In general, pretty much everyone I know at university is completely accepting/supportive of it.
    I've only had an issue with one person but I wouldn't want to be friends with them anyway so I'm perfectly happy to stay out of their way.

    I agree with your first point, although I question the second one.

    Brunel. Full of Asians and gays. Not that I have a problem with that. My best friend is gay, and I am a polyglot, so my Asian friends helped me on my way. :cool:

    Its awesome. There's so many people so easy to find gays to hang out with if thats what you want (for friends or hooking up or whatever). Or not. People are cool and if they're not just find better friends.

    Uni has LGBT Club - fairly big as far as I know.

    about 5 hall mates are gay.

    friend of a friend is gay.

    no big deal?

    I'm not gay and I don't see them as being "OMFG HE'S GAY", and I'm pretty sure no one really cares that much?
