Not a crew member, but going to bump this up because I'd like to see some more current responses.
No one should want to cause a crew or staff to risk their job, nor can individuals be asked to out themselves just for the pax interest, but I always try to seek out "fellow travelers" in the hopes I can make their day brighter with a little friendly interaction, and it certainly is a pleasure for the pax to feel as if "friends" are in their midst.
It would be nice if gay officers, staff or crew could stop by the GLBT/FOD gatherings and say hello. That ever considered or happen?
I notice that if the CD is gay, it is a hosted FOD gathering... otherwise, we are on our own. Oh well....
