I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

We all desire to find our gay tribe, a community of those that feel comfortable to us and nurture our journey. Part of being human is the search for an individual identity. Bound to this strong need to establish a unique persona, however, is an equally intense desire for acceptance. It is when we find our individual gay tribes that both are satisfied. Our gay tribe members are those people who accept us as we are without reservation and gladly accompany us on our journeys of evolution. Among them, we feel free to be our imperfect selves, to engage unabashedly in the activities we enjoy, and to express our vulnerabilities by relying on our gay tribe for support. We feel comfortable investing our time and energy in the members of our gay tribe, and are equally comfortable allowing them to invest their resources in our development.

The individuals who eventually become members of your unique gay tribe are out there in the wide world waiting for you. You are destined to find them, one by one, as you move through life. Sometimes your own efforts will put you in contact with your future gay tribe members. At other times, circumstances beyond your control will play a role in helping you connect with your gay tribe. If you look about you and discover that you are already allied with a wonderful and supportive gay tribe, remember that there are likely many members of your gay tribe you have not yet met. On the other hand, if you feel you are still living outside of your gay tribe, broadening your horizons can help you find your gay tribe members.

However your life develops after you come together with your gay tribe, you can be assured that its members will stand at your side. On the surface, your gay tribe may seem to be nothing more than a loose-knit group of friends and acquaintances to whom you ally yourself. Yet when you look deeper, you will discover that your gay tribe grounds you and provides you with a sense of community that ultimately fulfills many of your most basic human needs.
