I thought the Gerard interview was quite interesting. I never thought of the best kind of writing as the one where you have to research and find out about first. Phillip Gerard thinks that there is excitement in learning new things. For my research topic I do not know much about it yet, so it will be thrilling to learn about it in depth. I am writing about the transgender community and what type of organizations there are on college campuses to support them. As I am a student on a college campus, I have heard nothing about the transgender community. I do know that there are LGBT groups on campus but I know very little about them. However, I am open minded and ready to learn about the topic through my research. My paper will be unique because I am not apart of the LGBT community, so I can’t relate, but I can learn to understand their situation.
