When I started my legal career with a local firm, the firm hired a legal secretary. The partner at the time told the secretary “You do know she’s [meaning me] a lesbian?” prior to the secretary ever meeting me. I still do not know why the partner brought it up. I consider this a small anecdote, which is relatively harmless, but it definitely shows that someone thought my sexuality could be a problem, even in the last 10 years or so.
Lucky there was no issue between the secretary and I, indeed we are firm friends to this day.
