“I think I could deal with it. I have friends who are lesbians. It doesn’t mean they want to come onto me. I’m not afraid of lesbians. I like them. And the same with gay men. I’m open to it. You can’t prejudge people.”

Neil Benziger

“Yes. Having a lesbian or gay man as a roommate would be fine. That wouldn’t bother me. It might even give me a different perspective on things. It really depends on the person. I’d be more interested in someone’s personality, not their sexual orientation.”

Robert O’Brien
student | Washington Square West
“Yes, but I’d have to set some ground rules, just like with any roommate. I’ve never done it before, so it would be a new experience. It would stretch my viewpoint and enrich my life. I like to interact with all kinds of people, so I think it would be fine.”

Emily Rosenthal
medical student | Washington Square West
“Yes. If my roommate could do my hair, offer great fashion tips and get the apartment looking good — that would be fabulous! But any gay man or lesbian who doesn’t fall into that category also would be fine.”
