For anyone coming to this archived thread by a Google search, as I did, it's worth noting that HBS does now have a trans student.

I can't post URLs, but you can find more information by searching for a story titled "Incitement to Indifference" on the harbus (student newspaper). I think it's also referenced on the LGBTSA website.

I would be interested in hearing people's current opinions on this. The LGBT landscape in this country has shifted dramatically over the past couple of years (largely for the better) and I would be interested in hearing how that has trickled down to B-School admissions. Can anyone speak to this?

Also, can anyone speak to how to incorporate one's LGBT identification into the application when you've been incredibly fortunate to not experience the hardships that so many LGBT identifying people experience in the world? I would not feel right crafting an essay around the hardships of being a gay man as that has not been my experience. At the same time, it is incredibly important that I present the full scope of my identity and find a program that is 100% accepting and encouraging of the LGBT community, especially in what is typically a heteronormative environment. Any thoughts?

Its a good idea to fake LGBT dats a different thing thats its not morally right to fake when ur not but who can possibly know , even better if you come from a country where homosexuality is outlawed you can make up a story that u r fightng for LGBT rights in your country sure that wud be a great story for ur application though, with a 700+ score can easily get in a top 10 US college. there is no way any one can verify whether u r LGBT or not.... I dont support this idea just saying.....

I sincerely hope nobody would support this idea.

The admissions committee cares because they are looking to build a diverse class of people with diverse experiences. And yes, being homosexual gives you quite a different experience that you can bring into the classroom. This unique experience can actually help your classmates learn and be more open to people from different backgrounds than their own.
