Out Magazine’s Popnography blog has a few job ideas for queer retail workers:
> If you’re a clothes hound > Work at H&M
> If you’re a serious artiste > Work at MAC Cosmetics
> If you’re a hippie kid > Work at Ben & Jerry’s
> If you’re a caffeine addict > Work at Starbucks
> If you’re a mall rat > Work at Hot Topic
> If you’re a lit geek > Work at Borders
And this will only work if you are gay. Well, maybe at H&M you’ll have the upperhand. Make a note of it on your application.
