  • The LGBT Thread II

    The other thread went south, so we needed a fresh start. So this thread is for the queer community to chat and support each other, much like the last. It is not only for them, of course.

    A couple notes:

    Questioning people's gender or sexuality is not okay. Conflating groups with posters here (which include every element of the "alphabet") of being child predators is not okay. The Mods are not in a good mood about this at the moment as it is a civil rights flashpoint at the time of this writing. You are advised to be circumspect in any critical posting of groups that post here. We are not lying in wait, but for a number of us this is our life.

    With that out of the way please by all means post.

    A couple years ago my husband started to hold my hand in public.

    At first this freaked me out. I was worried about stares, whispers and worse. I'm happy to say that after nearly two years, not only we not received any kind of negative reaction, we've received some positive attention because of it. I'm really impressed with my city. We're an island of progressives in a sea of conservatives and it's so nice to be treated like any other couple when we're in public. When I mention my husband to strangers, they don't even bat an eye.

        I volunteered as an escort.

        Ok some context is needed.

        My best friend is gay, and openly so. He's happy with his situation and doesn't try to hide it. His boyfriend is basically on the opposite scale - not really open, hates to be seen in public with him and generally not at ease with public displays of affections. This situation lead my friend to find himself alone at every job parties and other public meetings.

        So I volunteered to be his fake boyfriend for those events, just to make him happy. I just hope his boyfriend will soon feel confortable enough with his sexuality to go to events with his partner.

          I know my boyfriend is just finally getting comfortable with holding my hand in public after almost a year. It can be rough, but best advice I can give is just to stick it out and talk things through.

            Oh, I know that. I even told him to, but I can't live his life for him.

              Sorry, I didn't mean to seem like I was suggesting that.

                  I once went on a gay date without even realizing it.

                  Long story short I went to a new bar in town, somehow missing the fact that it mostly catered to homosexual people. Had a few drinks and started talking to a guy who was very friendly and invited me to join him in the restaurant next to the bar for something to eat.
                  Fast forward two hours and he insisted on paying for my meal as well and drive me home which I took as a generous gesture because it was late already and I wasn't there by car - after all I was a little tipsy and thus in no condition to drive.At my place he asked if I would mind him "warming up" a little and I didn't. He was nice, I liked him. Offered to make him some coffee, too.
                  As we sat in my kitchen and talked, he thanked me for the date and then it dawned on me. I somehow had missed the entire point. I'd like to say that I'm not that oblivious to romantic advances nowadays, but I know a few people who'd correct me on that, so I'll just say that this might happen to me even today.

                  I didn't mind it, though. We had a good time and even got together for a few months. Its how I pretty much cemented my then vague idea of me being bisexual. And we of course had a proper date next time. With me paying, of course, to even the score. I like to think that this makes me a good, if oblivious, person.

                      In the past year my niece (born nephew), and my cousin's son (born daughter) have come out as trans and my son has come out as gender fluid and pansexual. 3/10 of that generation of my family are LGBTQ. The coolest thing about it is that most of my family is actually supportive of it. I'm happy that I misjudged them.

                          Other queer-oriented place I post is the Wilde Side subforum of rpg.net. It is more trans than anything but other GLBT threads are welcome and pop up from time to time. As for an entire forum there are none I use presently.

                            And I was wondering what happen to LGBT Thread I did not see in month now...

                            So, in last few weeks, my niece come out as bisexual on Facebook. I'm not 100% it's true, still not talked with her on the side about it. But she got mixed reactions from her friends on FB - some positive, some negative - and I can say it's progress for the Poland's society. Maybe there is chance for out LGBT youths in future.

                            And I have a bit silly mem in topic - It's not to offend any one, but it clearly would solve latest laws problems in USA.

                              I'm all sorts of uncertain about my gender identity, but my boyfriend did my makeup and gave me some feminine clothes to wear out for my birthday dinner last weekend and I had a blast.

                              Definitely miss living in California, though. Arizona is just so much more hostile.
